1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Using matrix algebra calculate the voltage expected across each resister in the circuit diagram. Only need the simultaneous equations. 3. The attempt at a solution 15=6800(I_bI_a )+2200(I_bI_c) 15=2200(I_cI_b )+8200(I_cI_d) 25=8200(I_dI_c )+4700I_d Thanks for any help.

It looks like you're doing okay finding the mesh equations. You haven't written one for the first mesh (Ia) yet. Once you have equations for all four loops, for each equation collect the terms for each current so you've got the form: a*Ia + b*Ib + c*Ic + d*Id = V. It should be straightforward to go to the matrix form from there.

Thanks for the reply. I seem to have got it right then.
With Ia I have 20=3300I_a+6800(I_aI_c) 15=6800(I_bI_a )+2200(I_bI_c) 15=2200(I_cI_b )+8200(I_cI_d) 25=8200(I_dI_c )+4700I_d Cheers.
