# How can three resistance of 2, 3 and 6 ohms be connected so as to give a total resistance of 1 ohm?

Answer :

If we connect the given three resistors as shown in the figure below then we get net resistance as 1Ω. Here all the resistors are connected in parallel.

∴their equivalent resistance will be given as

⇒

⇒ Req = 1 Ω.

Therefore, the resistances must be connected in parallel to get equivalent resistance of 1 Ω.
