8 resistors (orange color) are connected to form a regular octagon. 8 more resistors (blue color) connect the vertices of the octagon to its center. All the 16 resistors are of resistance 420 ohms.

If the connecting wires have negligible resistance, calculate the equivalent resistance (in ohms, rounded to the nearest integer) between the terminals A and B.
