Sleepy Joe needs to get some rest. Can you set the level of the current flowing through the resistors to his light so that the light will go off and he can get some sleep?

To do this, the current in all four branches of the circuit must be equal. The bottom two branches are set to one ohm. The upper left branch has two serial resistors, and the upper right branch has two parallel resistors. Values for serial resistors add together for a total current. The total for resistors in parallel is found by multiplying them together, and dividing that result by the sum of adding them together. When the values of the two upper branches are equal, the light will go off.
