Will the terminal voltage of the battery increase, decrease or remain the same?

If another resistor is added to the circuit, between the positive terminal of the battery and the two of 6.0 Ω parallel resistors, will the terminal voltage of the battery increase, decrease or remain the same? Use principles of physics to explain your answer.

The voltage of the battery remains the same. What changes is the current flow through the branches of the circuit as more resistors are added. Without a diagram of the circuit, it is difficult to give a precise answer.
