But i don't even know how to start solving this because of the crisscross resistorsThe way Homework Help works is you have to show your best effort so we can see where you're having difficulties.
We can't help you if you don't know where to start because we don't know how you're expected to solve the problem.But i don't even know how to start solving this because of the crisscross resistors
This isn't from class, i'm just solving random exercises. It says i'm supposed to find the equivalent resistance that would replace this whole circuit between a and b and the only thing i know how to do it is put the right most 2 resistors into a parallel, but i don't know how to solve the x in the middleWe can't help you if you don't know where to start because we don't know how you're expected to solve the problem.
Instructors don't typically ask students questions that they won't know how to answer. Check your notes/book. Talk to your instructor.
What does that have to do with my problem?Also see this https://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/...he-equivalent-resistance.163560/#post-1436911

This circuit is drawn to deliberately confuse you. Identify resistors that are in parallel by looking at which resistors share the same pair of nodes.Hi, can anyone please explain to me how to solve the diagonal part of this circuit please? Thanks.

Then un-crisscross them.But i don't even know how to start solving this because of the crisscross resistors
(??? which way "diagonal")diagonal part
That's what I get...Thanks everyone, so would this be correct then?
Yep! Notice how close the estimate of 16 Ω was.Thanks everyone, so would this be correct then?
