 Question 47642: How can I isolate R1? 1/1.33 = 1/(R1-6) + 1/R1 This is what I've done: 1/1.33 = R1 + (R1-6) ------------- (R1-6)(R1) 1/1.33 = 2R1-6 ------ (R1-6)(R1) I did not know what to do after this. I also tried the following 1/1.33 = R1/ (R1-6)(R1) + (R1-6)/(R1-6)(R1) 1/1.33 = 1/(R1-6) + 1 / R1 This as far as I've gone ISBN 0471-15183-1 CHAPTER 20 PROBLEM 54 Click here to see answer by stanbon(57395)
