in a series circuit, as light bulbs are added, the voltage at the battery increases/decreasees/remains the same in a series circuit, as light builbs are added, the current at the battery increases/decreases, remains the same.

    Voltage at battery remains the same, but the current decreases. Addiing lightbulb increases the total resistance of the circuit, hence decreases current.

    so in a parallel circuit, voltage would be the same, and current would increase because of decrease in resistance?

    but i thought if a light bulb were removed/added, its brightness wouldn't change
