Layout of general-purpose circuit board
Figure 7. Layout of general-purpose circuit board.
 
Possible layout of parallel resistor circuit
Figure 8. A possible layout of circuit b in Fig. 6, wiring R2 and R3 in parallel.

The current through R2 can be measured by replacing the lead between points a and f with an ammeter; similarly the current through R3 can be measured by connecting the ammeter between point b and g and removing the connecting lead shown. If you do not understand this, please see your lab instructor for further explanation.
