    (see attempt at a solution for problem)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Are the two resistors in red parallel or would the ones in green be parallel? I know you can twist the wires around, but seems they can be pulled to the right or to the bottom. I'm guesing the green is in series, and the red is in parallel, right?

    Yes, the green resistors are in series. Try finding the eq resistance of the green resistors and then that equivalent resistance will be in parallel with the 2.4 ohm
