Equivalent resistance for series resistors:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{R}}}_{\mathbf{e}\mathbf{q}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}{{\mathbf{R}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

Equivalent resistance for parallel resistors:

$\overline{)\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{eq}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{+}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{R}}_{\mathbf{2}}}}$

(a) The 820Ω and the 680Ω resistor are in parallel.

R820,680 = (1/820 + 1/680)-1 = 371.7 Ω
