ok this is a simple question and i have the idea but just not 100% sure(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If two legs of a parallel circuit have about the same about amount of current, what can you say about the resistance of each of these legs?

My answer is that both legs most probable have the same object(resistors), there resistance would be very alike

any corrections?

Another question was

Paul’s Super Marco video game uses batteries that produce 3 V. If the circuitry produces a resistance of 15 Ω, how much current is generated in the game?

I came up with

I=v/r

I=3/15

.2=3/15

.2 current generated in game

but...

on the rubric for the question it says

Reversing Ohms and Volts in formula (15/3)=10 points

im not quite sure what they mean by that any help would be great

Thanks!
