1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

draw a circuit diagram for a single circuit with the following conditions:
a. resistor one is in series with resistor 2 and 3
b. resistor 2 and 3 are in parallel with each other
c. capacitor one is in series with resistor 1
d. a voltmeter is used to measure the voltage across resistor 3

3. The attempt at a solution
I know that the battery goes to resistor one, and then there is a single line to resistor 2, cause series means one path, but where do I put resistor 3 and the capacitor?
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The question is not stated very well. I don't know if the original question has the problem, or it is the re-statment of it here, but I will try to help.

Let me try stating it a bit better.

Draw the following circuit: A battery feeds the following series combination:

R1
C
R2 in parallel with R3

Does that help?

resistor 1,will go to a parallel connection between 2 and 3(will look like a sideways y at the start) like -= the equals is 2 and 3 and the dash is 1... capacitor 1 is before that. voltmeters go in series...... thats about as helpful as it gets without someone actually drawing it for you.
