# Resistor Network

## Homework Statement

Show that the equivalent resistance is Req = 1/2 [(4RtRl + Rt^2)^(.5) + Rt]

## The Attempt at a Solution

So far all I can get is Req = Rt + Rl Rt/(Rt+Rl) from the first three resistors starting from the left. I suppose I could take that and add it to the next branch Rl Rt/(Rt+Rl), but that would appear to go on to infinity as opposed to stopping at a nice number.

Does anyone have any hints on finding the eq. resistance?
