Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first step: the equivalent circuit is: dw:1434308145988:dw where R is: \[\Large R = \frac{1}{{\frac{1}{{4.5}} + \frac{1}{{1.3}} + \frac{1}{{6.3}}}} = ...Ohms\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, I got a different result since: \[\Large R = \frac{1}{{\frac{1}{{4.5}} + \frac{1}{{1.3}} + \frac{1}{{6.3}}}} = 1.15Ohms\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so total resistance is: \[\Large {R_{TOTAL}} = 5 + 1.15 = ...Ohms\]
