## Homework Statement

Four resistors are connected as shown (figure attached). Find the resistance between points a and b.

## Homework Equations

[tex]R_{eq} = \sum{R_{n}}[/tex] for series resistors

## The Attempt at a Solution

The four resistors in the figure are in series. Therefore, to determine the resistance between points a and b, we must find the effective resistance of these resistors. Summing them, we find that [tex]R_{eq} = 201\Omega[/tex]. However, that answer is incorrect.

Any help in understanding this problem would be really appreciated!
