**1. Homework Statement**

This problem involves a sketch of a system of resistors, so I will do my best.

A--xx1xx---|---xx1xx--B

.\..............|............./

...x............x...........x

....x...........x..........x

......3.........1........5

........x.......x.......x

..........x.....x.....x

............\...|.../

..............\.|./

................\/

The numbers between the x's represent the resistors and their vaules.

The question asks to find the equivalent resistance R[ab].

**2. Homework Equations**

I am aware of the series/parallel relation ships between resistors, but this question seems ambiguous.

1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2

Req = R1 + R2

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

The question states that the solution should be 27/17, but anyway I work this problem I dno't seem to get this answer, although I have gotten very close.

Any help?
