Homework Help: Parallel and series circuits

  1. Nov 19, 2005 #1
    How can you separate the series and parallel in this combination?? I'm confused.... the question asks for equivalent resistance

    I thought it's somelike like this:

    1/R eq = 1/2R(1) + 1/R(1) + 1/R(2)

    but it's wrong...help?

    I can't see the picture, but for resistors in paralell 1/(total resistance) = sum of(1/induvidual resistances)
