Ok, this problem is bugging. I have to find the total equivalent resistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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 *?
