Hi Jake,

Your mistake is the the first calculation for current.

In a series circuit, the current is the same throughout the circuit, and it is determined by I = E/R

Where E is the source voltage.

What should your value for R be? The resistance of the loose connection, or the total resistance in the circuit?
