A student has three $$6.0~\Omega$$ resistors that can be connected together in any configuration. What are the maximum and minimum resistance that can be obtained by using one or more of these three resistors?
(Assume the connections between the resistors have negligible resistance, the temperature of the resistors is constant, and the resistors are used in a d.c. circuit and none of the resistors are short­circuited.)

 1 maximum resistance: $$12~\Omega$$; minimum resistance: $$0.50~\Omega$$ 2 maximum resistance: $$6.0~\Omega$$; minimum resistance: $$0.50~\Omega$$ 3 maximum resistance: $$18~\Omega$$; minimum resistance: $$6.0~\Omega$$ 4 maximum resistance: $$18~\Omega$$; minimum resistance: $$2.0~\Omega$$
