Revive Resistance - Series & Parrallel

  1. Apr 24, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    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. Relevant 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

    Perhaps if you showed your working we could help you out.

    HINT: You have a system of two simultaneous equations, with two unknowns.
