Five identical resistors, each of resistance R, are connected in series to a battery, and a total current of 9.74 A flows in the circuit.
i. Now, another resistor of resistance R is added to the circuit, in series with the rest of the resistors. Find the new total current in the circuit. I =

ii. In the original circuit: suppose another resistor of resistance R is added to the circuit, in parallel with the battery. Find the new total current in the circuit. I =
