Would it be possible to get some help with this question?. I dont know how to redraw this circuit and how to analyze parallel and seies for resistors. Thanks for any help.

All cases are in the figure below. Equivalent resistances are

Between A) and B)

`R_("eq") = R1 "parallel" (R2 "series" R3) = R1 "parallel" (R2+R3) = (R1*(R2+R3))/(R1+R2+R3)`

Between A) and C)

`R_(eq) = (R1 "series" R2) "parallel" R3 = (R1+R2) "parallel" R3 =(R1+R2)*R3/(R1+R2+R3)`

Between A) and D)

`R_(eq) = ((R1 "series" R2) "parallel" R3) "series" R4 = (R1+R2) "parallel" R3) + R4 = ((R1+R2)R3)/(R1+R2+R3) + R4`

Between B) and C)

`R_(eq) = R2 "parallel" (R1 "series" R3) = R2 "parallel" (R1+R3) = R2(R1+R3)/(R1+R2+R3)`

Between B) and D)

`R_(eq) = R2 "series" R4 = R2 +R4`

Between C) and D)

`R_(eq) = R4`
