Homework Statement


Three 66.0 Ω resistors are connected across the sides of an equilateral triangle ABC as shown in the figure.
What is the equivalent resistance between any two points AB, BC, AC of this circuit?



Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I dont understand. They give me a triangle with the same resistance at each point, and there asking for the resistance between any of the two points

Do you see any series or parallel combinations you could make?

Well, make them! What problems are you having? Show some work and ask questions.

I cant show any work because I dont understand what im being asked to find. If there series, to find the equivalent resistance you just add them because there series

you need to find the equivalent resistance by making one series and one parallel combination (after the series one).

Is this a delta of resistors by chance? Something like: /_\ with a resistor on each wire of the delta?
