# DC Circuit Equivalent Resistance Problem

Hello guys,

My teacher gave me a question regarding calculation of equivalent resistance, trying to solve which I’m losing my sanity. I feel a bit ashamed because this is my first post and I’m using it to ask a doubt, a little selfish of me. But it’s kind of urgent so I don’t really have a choice. Now I’ve read the rules and I know I’m going a little out of the line, because in order to show the circuit I’m going to have to attach an image, and also that I have made numerous attempts at the solution and all of them are wrong, so I don’t know if I should attach them or not. Should I attach any one of them? The values of all the resistors in the circuit is R, and we have to find R

_{AB}and R_{AC}in the question. I do not know the answer for R_{AC}, but the answer for R_{AB}is (3/2)R, or 1.5R. If anyone can show me how can I simplify the circuit in order to get the value of R_{AB}as 1.5R, I will be EXTREMELY grateful! I just need to know the correct way of how to simplify this circuit, because I’ve tried many different approaches, all resulting in different and incorrect answers. :confused: Thanks for reading, and I sincerely apologize for not fully complying to the rules here, I would be grateful if anyone could point out how I can follow them and still ask my question properly. Thanks 🙂 I’ve attached the image of the circuit (Sorry for my horrible drawing skills) .**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**Simplify the given circuit and obtain the values of R_{AB} and R_{AC}.

**2. Relevant equations**

None, I’ve attached the image of the circuit. The values of all the resistors in the circuit is R.

**3. The attempt at a solution**

All my attempts are wrong. Should I just attach any one of them? Help me out here please!
