So my assignment was to build this circuit in multisim and measure all the values for the completed circuit as well as with defects (R2 shorted, R2 open, etc.). So I got all of the measurements fine but the next part requires you to take the circuit with a defect, and write down all the steps and calculations for analyzing the circuit. So I know to begin with a series parallel circuit you should find Rt, but I am confused with this specific circuit on what is series and parallel and how to add them up. So all I need to know is how I would calculate the total resistance using standard methods, and how would I then calculate it assuming R2 is open?
