I prefer to remember the parallel resistor formula this way:
$$\frac{1}{Rt} = \frac{1}{R1} + \frac{1}{R2} + \frac{1}{R3} + \frac{1}{R4}  +  ... $$
It is algebraically identical to the way Dave presented it, but I find it clearer - and it follows a similar pattern as the series resistor formula:
$${Rt} = {R1} + {R2} + {R3} + {R4}  +  ... $$
