1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://postimg.org/image/p14d9faf9/ The top two resistors are in parallel, so their equivalent resistance is 0.6 ohms. But if you were to draw the equivalent circuit, where do we place this equivalent resistance? can it be placed either where the 1 ohm or 2 ohm resistors used to be? would it affect my answer for the equivalent resistance of the whole circuit?
