## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

Ohm's Law, Equations for parallel and series combinations of resistors[/B]

## The Attempt at a Solution

Working this problem I obtain a solution that doesn't make sense, which is that the bulbs are dimmer.

If I assign 10 ohms to each bulb, I believe the total resistance would be:

[tex]R_D+R_C+\left(\frac{1}{R_A}+\frac{1}{R_B}\right)^{-1}=25\Omega[/tex]

After removing A, it would just be 30 ohms.

Before: 25 ohms

After: 30 ohms

So now there's more resistance and less current? [/B]
