OK two identical circuits in parallel ...

White LED forward drop 3.5V @ 20ma ..

Each is two leds in series a 100 ohm 1/4 watt resistor.

The math is ; two LEDs in series are 3.5v + 3.5v = 7volts

Leaving 9vBattery - 7.0vLEDs = 2volts for resistor

Ohms Law R = V / i = 2 / o.02 = 100 ohms

Ohms Law P = V x i = 2 x o.02 = o.04 watts ... Closest available is 1/4w.
