    2. Relevant equations

    nodal analysis

    3. The attempt at a solution

    When i did the problem, i got 3V. Is this right or wrong?

    It is incorrect.

    Show your work if you want help.

    Your formula (1) doesn't seem to match the circuit diagram. Shouldn't V2 = V1 + 18V?

    Ah, you're right. Thanks.

    If that's corrected and propagated down... I get

    V2 = 4.5V, V1 = -13.5V, V3 = 11.25V

    So the answer is 11.25V?
