    2. Relevant equations

    Sum of resistance in a parallel circuit: 1/Rt = 1/R1 + 1/R2....
    Sum of resistance a series circuit: Rt= R1+R2...

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Don't know where to go from here:

    Actually, I believe this might be the solution. Is this correct?

    Well I see you got a start and eliminated the Voltage and Current sources. However I can't tell if those sources were replaced by Shorts or Opens. Can you clarify with a better schematic?
