 P: 3 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Here is the circuit http://i.imgur.com/Xn2mc.jpg 3. The attempt at a solution I've tried it a few ways, but the one I'm going for at the moment is this Node 1: (v1-v2)/10 + (v1-v3)/15 + v1 /5 = 1 Node 2: (v2-v1)/10 + (v2-v3)/10 + v2 / 5 = 2 Node 3: 2Vx where Vx = (v2 - v1)/10 When I solve I don't get the correct answers: Node 1: 5.405V and Node 2: 7.297V I tried doing equations without a 'node 3' involved but they just didnt work out either. If i DO only need to use 2, please explain to me how to do so, I'm really stuck :(

Don't have time to dive into this thing yet, but this is not helping:
 Node 3: 2Vx where Vx = (v2 - v1)/10
should be vx = v2 - v1
 P: 3 You're a lifesaver, figured it out. It's always the small things that get me, stupid dependency equations. Thank you :)

Node voltage Analysis with voltage controlled voltage source

I assume you dug up the 4th equation? 4 unknowns need 4 equations: v1, v2, v3, vx.
Of course, the 4th is obvious ....
 P: 3 haha i had the 4th equation i just wrote it wrong >.<
