1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Breakdown, and find the total resistance for this circuit. 2. Relevant equations V=IR Parallel Circuits - 1/Rtot = 1/R1 + 1/R2 ... Series Circuits - Rtot = R1 + R2 3. The attempt at a solution http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/4176/centralkootenayj2011122.jpg [Broken] Please dont mind the resistor units, they're all in kΩ. Basically, I try to breakdown the circuit into its most simple form. I feel however that in my 3rd recreation I'm doing something wrong. In the first circuit diagram, I took the two resistors on the right and made them one (as they're in series). I then considered the two resistors on the far right in parallel, finding the new resistance. However --- is this correct, as there is the 6 ohm resistor just before it. Must I include this in the Rparallel equation? I have tried this but still I get an incorrect answer, of 2.67kΩ. My answer as done in the picture is 2.5kΩ. However the supposed answer is 3kΩ. And no there isn't supposed to be a rounding of the answer. Please help!
