Extremely Simple Notation Question on a Circuit

  1. Feb 26, 2014 #1
    I cannot for the life of me remember what to do with the diode:

    It is a DC Current hooked up to one resistor in series with a pair of resistors in parallel drawn vertically, but then the diode is hooked up to (on paper) the top two ends of the parallel resistors?

    It's aligned horizontally, but it looks like its in parallel but then why wouldn't they just make another vertical extension? and it can't be in a series can it?
