1. Homework Statement

Two resistors, when conected in series have a total resistance of 12.9KOhms, and when connected in parallel a combined resistance of 2.988KOhms. Derive the value of the individual resistors.

2. Homework Equations

R = R1+R2 ---Series
1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2

3. The Attempt at a Solution

Ive tried a few different things but i dont get the right answer :S
