Resistors and LED question Answered

Hello, I have a quick question about resistors and LEDs. If I am making an LED flashlight, do I attach the resistor to the (-) side or the (+) side? Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. Does it matter if the gold side of the resistor is facing towards the battery or not?

nope, resistors don't have polarity, you can connect them anyway you want. when I first got into electronics I had those 2 exact questions.
