Three resistors of different values can be connected together in different configurations.

If all three resistors are used in a circuit, how many different values of total resistance can be

produced?

I can only find five... but the answer key says eight.

series,

then parallel,

then one in series with two parallel two at a time(I get three combinations here)

so far 5, then

two in series, one in parallel (three ways here).

eight total
