Where the total resistance is equal to the inverse of the sum of all inverses of resistors (branches) in parallel
Thus, Req(parallel) is less than any single RK independently; adding more resistors in parallel will decrease the total resistance
In terms of resistance, the advantage of a series configuration is that the battery will last longer; the greater the resistance, the more difficult it is for the charges to travel; thus, less charge is drawn out of the battery over time (less current)
A parallel configuration generates lesser resistance, allowing charges to flow freely; thus, more charge is drawn out of the battery over time (more current)
