## Homework Statement

Using all the following resistors : 2 x 12 ohms , 2 x 24 ohms , and 2 x 36 ohms. create a circuit where the total resistance will be 4 ohms.

The problem states that I have to use ALL of the resistors..making it so complicated

## Homework Equations

1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3... (in parallel)

Req + R1+R2+R3... (in series)

## The Attempt at a Solution

The closest I got was (1/12) + (1/(24+36)) + (1/36) + (1/12) + (1/24). Is there a trick or something..

I could have 4 parallel resistors.. 12 parallel to 12 parallel to 24 parallel to 24.

(1/24) + (1/24) + (1/12) + (1/12) = 1/4 ... but I did not use the 2 x 36 ohms.. help will be appreciated.
