    Soulja101, please note that for homework questions we require you to show working/effort before we can help you. Better still, use the homework template with which you were provided. Do you have any thoughts on the question?

    No. A series circuit is not a parallel circuit!

    soulja101, I think you need to reread your text, pay special attention to ohm's law and work some examples on the various circuit configurations. With worked examples, it will become very clear the differences between series and parallel circuits.
