Two heating elements of 70 ohms and 30 ohms are connected in parallel The total resistance of this circuit would be?

To solve for resistors in parallel take the inverse of the sum
of the inverses of all the resistors: 1/((1/r1) + (1/r2) +
[Google this. It is a lot easier to understand when the proper notation can be drawn.] SO: Rt = 1/((1/70) + (1/30)) = 21ohms
