I want to find a load resistance's value so that it gets the maximum power transfer, and thus I am using Thevenin's theorem by finding the equivalent circuit's resistance.
By doing so, I got 2929.28 Ω.
The problem is that one of our classmate's claims that the resistance labelled as R4 doesn't have to be taken into account when calculating the equivalent resistance, with no further explanation as to why or how.
The question would be, does that...statement make any sense? Wouldn't all the resistances need to be grouped together in order to get the Thevenin/Norton resistance?
Below is the circuit and my solution:
