## Homework Statement

When two unknown resistors are connected in series with a battery, the battery delivers 260 W and carries a total current of 5.00 A. For the same total current, 35.0 W is delivered when the resistors are connected in parallel. Determine the values of the two resistors.

## Homework Equations

P = I^2 x R

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to make two unknowns by plugging in numbers into the equations, but that's not working. I know that the voltage will be the same throughout the parallel circuit, and that the current will be the same throughout the series circuit, but I'm not quite sure where to go from there.
