A circuit segment contains only two resistors of equal value, connected in parallel. If the total resistance of the circuit segment is 100 Ohms, what is the value of each resistor?

200 Ohms

Explanation

The total value of two resistors connected in parallel can be calculated using the formula
1/R = 1/R1 + 1/R2
Since the two resistors have the same value, R must be 200 Ohms.
