    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    R= pl/A
    effective resistance= 1/R
    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm honestly dont know where to start, althought I know i need to do something with the 200 coils first, but I have no idea what should be done with it

    You can start with a diagram. It is mandatory here to show some efforts on your own.
