    I am trying to calculate the rew of a paralle circuit but cannot get the right answer.

    The resistance of them each is 100ohms and 383.1944444 ohms or 27590/72.

    I tried the formula 1/R1+1/R2 but I am not getting the right answer. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Also how do i calculate voltage at each node? I am not too familiar with that and I goggled around and did not find anything helpful. I am trying to find voltage through each node in this circuit . it is problem number 1d. Any help would be appreciated.

    The link you posted is broken.

    Are you sure you got the formula right? It's:
    {1 \over R_{eq}} = {1 \over R_1} + {1 \over R_2} + ...
    which yields R_{eq} = {{R_1 R_2} \over {R_1 + R_2}} for two resistors. Maybe you forgot about that the left side of the first equation is a fraction.
