Ok, this problem is bugging. I have to find the total equivalent resistance. I have included a picture below. There are numbers to this problem, but I want to figure out how to do this in terms of variables first. First I added R3 and R4 in series R34=R3+R4 Then I figured out R234= 1/[1/R2+1/R34] Next I got R1234 = R1+R234 ------- * Now this is where I got stuck I know the remaining three resistors are in parallel with each other. I tried doing 1/[1/R5+1/R1234+1/R6], but that didnt seem to work. Whats the correct procedure to go about this after the *?
