    You have two resistors with different values. They may be combined either in series or in parallel, and that combination is then connected to a battery. Which of the following statements are true?

    (T/F) to minimize the total power coming out of the battery, the resistors should be connected in parallel.

    (T/F) to minimize the current through each resistor, the resistors should be connected in series

    (T/F) to maximize the total current out of the battery, the resistors should be connected in parallel

    (T/F) to minimize the total resistance of the circuit, the resistors should be connected in parallel

    (T/F) to maximize the total voltage from the battery, the resistors should be connected in series

    (T/F) to maximize the voltage across each resistor, the resistors should be connected in series
