I have an LED that needs a 125ohm resistor. I do not have that value available but want to get as close to that number as possible. If I used two resistors, a 22ohm+-5% and a 100ohm+-5% would this work? I know that the base value would only be 122 but would the tolerance cover for the difference?
My Logic: 22 + 5% = 23.1 22 - 5% = 20.9 100 + 5% = 105 100 - 5% = 95
Does this mean that my ohm amount is between 115.9 and 128.1? If so, would this damage the LED over time because the tolerance could be lower than the minimum of 125 or would the LED be ok because the tolerance can be higher than 125?
