Homework Statement


Find the equivalent resistance for this simple circuit.

Homework Equations


Equivalence Equations
In parallel: (1/R1 + 1/R2 + ... +1/Rn)^-1
In parallel (2 Resistors): (R1*R2)/(R1+R2)
In Series: R1+R2+...+Rn

The Attempt at a Solution


This was a much more complex circuit but I have it down to this.

My question...How do you treat R2 with Respect to R3 and R1? Could they be seen as all in parallel?

You should post the original circuit. What you have now is just a short circuit across the current source. You may have made a mistake in the reduction.
