    ** Using Norton here is silly and time wasting.

    It is simply a parallel resistor problem.

    1. RL plus R3 parallel R 5 - so compute the combined value.

    2. This value plus R2 parallel R4 - so compute the value.

    3. Add this to R1.

    You can simplify this circuit a lot by applying the rules for parallel and
    series resistors repeatedly.

    treat the voltage source as a short circuit (or as a fixed resistor if
    it has non-zero resistance) and solve for the resitance at the part that
    interests you (this would be the output terminals)

    Try thevenin that is a snap. look up thevenin theory.

    You are lucky today.
    Usually its not easy to get someone to do your homework for you.

    Exactly so. Norton's theorem applies to a two-terminal device
    consisting of voltage sources and resistors. Tell us _which_ two
    terminals of the seven, or there isn't any soluble problem presented.
