you have R=ohms tied in Series with a Parallel combination of R=ohms and R=ohms.?

what is the total resistance of this circuit?

and what is the total current thru the v battery?

First, solve the resistance of the parallel resistors and then add that to the series resistor to get total resistance:

/R(p) = /R + /R = / + / = / + / = /

Thus R(p) = / = . ohms

Thus R(t) = R(s) + R(p) = + . = . ohms

Since V=iR we know V and R so:

i = V/R = /. = . amps (to places)
