Ok. Do you know the differences between the two sets? How about the name of each set? I guess I could buy both...

Theres a million ways to get to 3ohms with a combination of rsistors. See what you can buy at radioshack and just make them into 3 ohms.

I have no experience with resistors. Sorry. Have no idea how to 'make' a combination of them into a 3 ohm. And tips? General info on resistors? Do 3, 1 ohm resistors make a 3 ohm? I have no idea. Sorry for my ignorance.

Yes 3 1 ohm resistors in series will make 3 ohms, or 3 10 ohm resistors in parallel will make 3.3 ohms etc. Its very easy just see what you can buy and then its simple to determine it.

Just to simplify things, series resistors add in value and parrallel resistors will be equal to 1/((1/R1)+(1/R2)....(1/Rn)) R stands for resistor value.

Ok. So the two types of resistors are "series" and "parallel." Got it. BTW, that equation was way over my head. But I think I understand it. lol.

series and parallel is just two different ways of wiring/connecting resistors. There are many different kinds of resistors but the equation hold true for any one that you would be concerned with.
