Series means current is same so all resistors are added

120 + 270 + 330 = 720

@Pushpa

Yes. You are correct.

Resistor are in series mean
R=R1+R2+R3
R=(120+270+330)0HM
R=720 OHM

@manoranjan

Yes this is correct formula.

R=R1+R2+R3
R=(120+270+330)
R=720OHMS

All add.
120+270+330=720.

Rehana said: (Jun 18, 2012)  
Because in series the resistance is the sum of all resistors present in the circuit.

Therefore Resistance (R) = 120+270+330.

R=720 ohms.

R=R1+R2+R3
R1=120,R2=270,R3=330,
Sum of total resistance to connecting in series = R
R=120+270+330=720
R=720 Ohms.

R = R1+R2+R3.

R1 = 120, R2 = 270, R3 = 330,

R = 120+270+330 = 720.

R = 720 Ohms.

Resistance in series then,

R = R1+R2+R3.

R = 120+270+330.

R = 720 Ohm.

All are connected in serious.

Add all voltages in resistance in series.
