## Homework Statement

The problem is to find the equivalent resistance between a to b.

## Homework Equations

Req in series = R1 + R2 + ... Rn

Req in parallel = inverse of sum of 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ... 1/Rn

Kirchhoff's Rules

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, I tried redrawing the circuit to figure out which resistors are in parallel and which are in series but it didn't help. The 1 ohm branches off to 9 ohms and 8 ohms; 6 ohms is connected to 8 ohms which forms a series with 3 ohms...(confuses me...). Anyway, I thought I shouldn't be using the Req equations but instead will be using Kirchhoff's rules somehow. I just don't know how to apply it here in this problem. Anyone have any suggestion as to how to start solving it? Thanks in advance
