Equal parts having resistance = 18/3 = 6 ohms
equivalent resistance in parallel,
1/R = (1/6) + (1/6)+ (1/6) = 3/6 = 1/2
⇒equivalent resistance, R=2 ohms

Resistance of each part = 18/3 = 6 ohm

So, if they are connected in parallel, the equivalent resistance will be
1/Rp = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3
1/Rp = 1/6 + 1/6 + 1/6
1/Rp = 3/6
1/Rp = 1/2
Rp = 2 ohm

So, the equivalent resistance is 2 ohm.
