# Homework Help: Get the resistance for each wires

One day when the familiy Jones is out and drives with his new car wonders Oskar why there is a lot of wires in the backwindow. The heat wires are parallelwired where the resistance is resistance free wired.
Oskar and his father reads in the instructionsbook that the wires got a resistance 5.0ohm/m they are connected six times parallely and the lenght of each wire is 0.8 m

Then I get the resistance for each wires is 0.8*5 = 4 Ohm

But This is not the answer, the book says that the answer should be 6Ohm because two wires creates a parallelwiring with resistance 4 Ohm in every turn and 2Ohm as replacementresistance

Can someone please explain to me how to do this ? :zzz: :zzz: :zzz: :zzz:

Im really stuck...

Thx
