# Calculating total resistance between two points (triangle resistor network)

I want to calculate the total resistance between the 2 points: A, B.

I've tried using the Delta-Wye method, but I'm not sure how to apply it to my problem since there's 6 resistors and not 3 (usually seen in tutorials). • If you did a Wye-Delta transform on just R2, R4, R6 - what would that give you? – brhans Dec 13 '18 at 18:44
• Do it step by step. Note that R5 is parallel to the rest of the network. Then reduce the problem tho that rest of the network. Note, that it would be symmetrical. – Eugene Sh. Dec 13 '18 at 18:45
• Note: All resistors having equal value lets you do another important simplification. – The Photon Dec 13 '18 at 18:45
• brhans: Transforming Wye -> Delta for R2, R4, R6 would give me R1, R3, R5. Right? If I'm right, do the resistance values change from 3K to something else or do they stay the same? – alcatraz Dec 13 '18 at 19:10
• Buy few resistors and measure – Gregory Kornblum Dec 13 '18 at 19:11
