(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1)Rank the brightness of the bulbs.

2) What happens to the brightness of the bulbs when A is unscrewed and removed.

3) A is unscrewed, what happens to current through 3,4,5.

Red circles are bulbs and the black circles are reference points.

3. The attempt at a solution

1) I know that B=C, but I am stuck on trying to figure out if A is brighter , the same, or less than the brightness of the others.

A is in parallel with B and C. Total resistance if each bulb was 1 resistance would equal then 2/3.

How is the current being split up? Is it being split evenly at the intersection of the center left?
