|Because the resistors will be parallel and thus resisitance will decrease. !|

|This is correct explanation.|
|Prasanna said: (Aug 19, 2012)|
Voltage divider is when resistance is connected in series.. And when load is connected to existing resistance in series then total resistance will be increased.

|Yeah, I agree with @Prasanna. Only resistors in series are voltage dividers. In parallel, current is split but not voltage. So adding another resistor to series should increase resistance, not reduce.|
|Pavan said: (Sep 24, 2013)|
|Yeah, I agree with both @Prasanna and @Priyanka. Voltage gets divided in series circuits and current gets divided in parallel circuits. So definitely resistance will increase.|

|Voltage divider is a series resistors i.e,. divided into different voltages then resistance will decreases.
Vertically three resistors are connected from that voltage divider for example 555 timer circuit so resistance decreases.
|Bhagchand said: (Nov 26, 2013)|
|Yes I agree with resistance is decrease.|
|Armandwish said: (Sep 13, 2015)|
|Take a simple voltage divider circuit then you will get know total resistance decrease.|
|Dewesh Shringi said: (Jun 11, 2016)|
|Yeah! the total resistance will decrease because,
R = V/I.
Now I is not changing in series connection so V is proportional to R.
If voltage decreases then the resistance also be decreases.
|Pranjal said: (May 15, 2017)|
|Yes resistance will decrease.|

|What is the correct answer? Please explain.|
|Kiran V said: (Sep 17, 2020)|
|Voltage divider is when resistance is connected in SERIES. And when LOAD is connected to existing resistance, usually LOAD RESISTANCE connected in PARALLEL. Hence the Resistance will Decrease.|
