Find the net resistance for the following circuit

  1. Jun 11, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the net resistance for the following diagrahm.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This is as far as I went to simplifying the resistors and I am stuck at the last step, not sure how to combine it since it's neither parallel or in series or is it?

    I posted my work thus far, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The last step is incorrect. What can you do with the 5 Ohm and 14.4 Ohm resistors before doing the last step?
