## Homework Statement

Find the equivalent resistance between points A and B shown in the figure(Figure 1) . Consider R1= 2.2 , R2= 1.0 , R3 = 3.6 , R4= 5.0 , R5= 4.0 , and R6= 7.6 .

## Homework Equations

For resistors in parallel, 1 / Req = 1/r1 + 1/r2 + 1/r3...etc

for resistors in series, Req= R1 + R2 + R3...etc

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I think R3, R4 and R5 are parallel

1/3.6 + 1/5 + 1/4 = .72

and then I think we can combine R6, R1 and R2 into one since they are parallel also.

1 / 2.2 + 1/1 + 1/7.6 = 1.58

Now add up .72 and 1.58 since they are in series? = 2.3

Would appreciate any help, this is pretty confusing to me lol
