# Parallel Resistance

The reciprocal of the total resistance of n resistors in parallel equals the sum of the reciprocals of each resistor.

$frac{1}{R_{total}}=frac{1}{R_{1}}+frac{1}{R_{2}}+frac{1}{R_{n}}$

$frac{1}{R_{1}}=frac{1}{R_{total}}-frac{1}{R_{2}}-frac{1}{R_{n}}$

$frac{1}{R_{2}}=frac{1}{R_{total}}-frac{1}{R_{1}}-frac{1}{R_{n}}$

etc.
