The problem states; 6 44ohm resitstors are connected so that 3 form a delta connection and 3 form a wye connection.The 2 banks are then connected in parallel to a 440V supply.
Calculate current in the wye connected resistors, the delta connected resistors and the total line current.
I must have missed somthing in class today and have found no examples, HELP!!!

What is posing you the issue? Would you like to hazard a guess at the answer?

If there is something you have missed in your lectures, I would suggest you speak to your lecturer to help you get up to speed. If there is something in your notes/understanding, then please explain where you are having issues, then we can help.
