If two resistors with resistances R1 and R2 are connected in parallel, then the total resistance, R, measured in ohms (Omega sign) is given by:

(1/R)=(1/R1)+(1/R2). If R1 is increasing at a rate of .2 ohms/s and R2 is increasing at a rate of .3 ohms/s, how fast is R changing when R1= 80 ohms and R2= 100 ohms.
