Series:R1 +R2 = 2.4 *10 ^3
Parallel: Rt Series * R3/ Rt Series + R3 = 1.389 * 10 ^3
Rt Parallel = 1.389 * 10 ^3

Rseries=1200 + 1200 = 2400
Rtotal = (2400*3300)/(2400+3300) = 1389 ohms or 1.389 k

Since one 3.3k resistor is half the circuit of the 2 3.3k resistors in series, then the total voltage drop across both 3.3k ohm resistors is now 12*2 = 24V. Since 2 3.3k ohm resistors are in parallel with a 4.7k ohm resistor, and voltage is equal across parallel paths, then the voltage across the 4.7k ohm resistor is also 24V.

2400x3300/2400+3300=
7920000./5700.=1389

1/2.4+1/3.3= .7196
1/7196=1.389

The answer is B.
The absolute best way to make this calculation is, (1/2.4+1/3.3)^-1 = 1.38947 in kOhms that is 1,389 ohms

resistors in series ADD

resistors in parallel inversely add.........................^^^^^^^^^......hence the whole equation to the ^-1
