For the total resistance when the resistors are **in parallel** to each other, we use:

The situation you describe seems to be this:

So there are **3** resistors, meaning we will use:

All resistors have a resistance of

Total up the Right Hand Side:

At this point you **cross multiply** :

Then simply solve it:
