    1) I know the formula for calculating total resistance but what if the
    other branch is empty?

    A -----+---+
    | |
    | |
    R |
    | |
    | |
    B -----+---+

    2) All current goes through the branch without the resistance?

    Empty it ain't. Gonna have a lot of current going through it. Tis a
    dead short.

    Classic trick homework or test problem. Makes you wonder why the
    poster used "" for his ID.

    We shouldn't be at that time a year again, should we?

    Every semester, around finals week, all of the kids that have spent the
    semester drunk and/or stoned start cramming for their finals, and they
    panic when they realize that they don't understand a word of what the
    textbook is about, so they come here and ask for the answers to the
    exercises, so they can pass the test and graduate illiterate. >:-[

    Cheers!

    my lecture notes don't cover that part and my googling didn't help.
    here WAS my last resort.
