I was trying to work out a way to calculate the combined resistance of more than 2 resistors in parallel. We all know the MAD rule for 2 resistors but does this equation work:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

combined resistance = sum of resistance * # of resistors^{-2}

I checked wikipedia and there was nothing there above 2 resistors.
