I believe this sleeve calculator will do the trick.

According to the calculator, 5 strands of 16 gauge = 10 gauge.

According to the calculator, 5 strands of 16 gauge = 10 gauge.

Determine final guage?

How does one determine the final guage of a conductor, when it is stated that it is made of, for example, "...5 strands of 16 guage wire..." or, "...6 strands of 18 guage wire..." or something to that effect? In each respective case, I do not believe the final conductor would still be 16 or 18 guage, correct?

Any help in clarifying this would be appreciated.
