    In general, for a series circuit, what's the total resistance, R_T?
    • A. 

      R_T = (R_1) * (R_2) * (R_3) * ... * (R_n)

    • B. 

      R_T = (R_1) / (R_2) / (R_3) / ... / (R_n)

    • C. 

      R_T = R_1 + R_2 + R_3 + ... + R_n

    • D. 

      1/(R_T) = 1/(R_1) + 1/(R_2) + 1/(R_3) + ... + 1/(R_N)

    • B. 

      1/(R_T) = 1/(R_1) + 1/(R_2) + 1/(R_3) + ... + 1/(R_n)

    • C. 

      R_T = (R_1) * (R_2) * (R_3) * ... * (R_n)

    • D. 

      R_T = (R_1) / (R_2) / (R_3) / ... / (R_n)

    Calculate the total resistance. Leave your answer as a fraction. Your answer is in Ω (Ohms). (Here's a hint: 1/(R_t) = 1/12 + 1/18 + 1/6 = 3/36 + 2/36 + 6/36)
