Resistors

Two resistors connected in series give the resulting resistance 245Ω and 60Ω in parallel. Determine the resistance of these resistors.

Correct answer:

R1 =  105 Ω
R2 =  140 Ω

Step-by-step explanation:

 R1+R2=245Ω 1R1+1R2=160Ω R2=245R1  1R1+1245R1=160Ω  R12245R1+24560=0 R12245R1+14700=0 (R1105)(R1140)=0  R1=105Ω R2=140Ω
