Then I suggest you study your text book and learn exactly that. If you have specific questions, then ask.

Draw any particular circuit for which you would like such a solution and then attempt to solve it and then if/when you get stuck post the circuit and what you have tried so far.

I want to help you on this but I'm just not clear what you are asking. What is your understanding of, say "the open circuit method" and how it is different from just doing computing the equivalent resistances?

i do not know the difference between the two, or really what the open circuit method is. I know how to find equivalent resistance using parallel and series equations, but my textbook keeps refering to a open circuit method that they did not talk about. I dont know how to even start doing it, or what it really is.I want to help you on this but I'm just not clear what you are asking.

Can you scan a paragraph out of the book where they are discussing it?

unfortunately, I do not own a scanner, or a camera, so that would be kind of difficult. I am living on an extremely low budget right now. but is their a method for solving the thevanine equivalent circuits using open or closed circuits?Can you scan a paragraph out of the book where they are discussing it?

Is their any way you can supply sample equations for short circuit and open circuit methods, I am just starting out, and It would really be helpful to me.

Thank you guys so much for all of your help

Just google "Thevenin equivalent circuit" and "Norton equivalent circuit". There are plenty of explanations and examples on the internet.Is their any way you can supply sample equations for short circuit and open circuit methods, I am just starting out, and It would really be helpful to me.

(shame on me). What I remember is that in order to obtain an equivalent circuit, voltage sources are replaced with open circuits and current sources are replaced with short circuits.

I've read another post of yours and my guess is that your book is not really helpful. Try introduction to circuit analysis from Boylestad and Nashelsky. This book covers both voltage dividers and equivalent circuit theorems.

Good luck bro.
