Instructions:

1. For each group of parallel or series resistors: press XEQ R.

2. At the Mode Prompt (INPUT M), enter 0 R/S for Parallel Resistors, 1 R/S for Series Resistors

3. Enter resistor values (assumed to be in Ohms) then press R/S.

4. To find the total, press XEQ R016.

5. Optional: Store the result in a variable for future use, as long is it not R.

Parallel Resistors: total resistance = 1/( 1/R1 + 1/R2 + ... )

Series Resistors: total resistance = R1 + R2 + ...
