The three resistance of 20 ohm, 10 ohm and 20 ohm on the extreme right side are in series.

So, the resultant of these three resistance = 20 + 20 + 10

= 50 ohms.

This 50 ohms is in parallel with 30 ohms. So resultant of these two will be

$$\frac{1}{R}$$ = $$\frac{1}{30}$$ + $$\frac{1}{50}$$

= $$\frac{1}{R}$$ = $$\frac{80}{1500}$$

R = 18.75 ohms

Now, the resistances 10 ohms, 18.75 ohms and 10 ohms are in series.

Therefore, resultant resistance = 18.75 + 10 + 10

= 38.75 ohms
