Equation for combined strings force constant

Hi,
you have two strings, one has force constant K1, the other Force Constant K2.
You hook the two strings together.


I need to see a derived euqation using K1 and K2 to find KTOTAL (the force constant when he two strings are placed together).


Please keep things as simple as possible :D thx

Figure it out for yourself! Hint: If the two strings are in series, the tension in each must be equal.
