Consider the infinite chain of resistors shown above and suppose that each resistor in the chain has a resistance of 90 Ω. What is the resistance of a single resistor that could be connected between A and B with the same resistance as that of the infinite chain?

2. Relevant equations

A------R-------R--------R--->

- - -

R R R to infinity

- - -

B------R-------R--------R--->

This is the best I could do to show the chain of resistors. It is the equivalent of a series of boxes with a resistor on each side.
