Resistors -- connected in series or in parallel 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The problem is asking for the currents, but I have a question about the resistors. I've been having trouble determining whether resistors are connected in series or in parallel. I've already looked at another thread in this forum about resistors, but it did not help with this situation. The circuit below is very basic, but I think it would help with more advanced circuitry if I knew about these resistors. 2. Relevant equations NA 3. The attempt at a solution I know: • the 40Ω and 20Ω are connected in series, and • the 125Ω and 50Ω are connected in parallel. I'm curious as to whether the 240Ω and the 60Ω (equivalent of 40Ω and 20Ω) are also connected in parallel with the 125Ω and 50Ω. And I'd like to know if there are any other resistor connections that can be simplified, or is that 2Ω just a loner?
