What is the total equivalent resistance?

R = ohms

**drwls**, Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 11:01pmIt does not matter what the voltage is when computing the equivalent resistance, Req.

1/Req = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3

Solve for Req. Compute 1/Req first and then take the reciprocal (one-over) of that. req = 1/(1/Req)
