    You have five unequal value resistors in parallel. Using ONLY ohm's law, figure out the total resistance.

    reciprocal of the sum of the 5 reciprocals

    I prefer the X-1 function on my calculator.
    a lot faster than doing it "Manually"
    YMMV

    That's not ohm's law though. :)

    Clarification. You're stranded on a desert island with one page from an electronics book and the only formula is ohm's law. :)

    Picky-Picky.

    Then the resiistors are on the mainland? ;)

    Resistance is futile.
    (not to mention less than the smallest resistor in parallel)

    It is if you use a 1 volt test source then take the reciprocal of the total current.

    R=E/I.

    Have fun
