how can we Find REQ and Io.
in the given circuit diagram
Step 1: Redraw the circuit to better reveal which resistors are in parallel and which are in series.
Step 2: Combine the series resistances.
Step 3: Reduce any parallel resistances using the formula for resistors in parallel.
Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have reduced the resistor network to a single equivalent resistance.
Step 5: Apply Ohm's Law.
Thanks , the steps helped me around first i think we will shorten the circuit by finding Req and then using Ohms law to find Io.
I think you have the idea now.
If you get stuck on any of the steps let me know and I will try to get you moving again.
Let us know what your final answer is.
