A circuit is constructed with six resistors and two batteries as shown. The battery voltages are V1 = 18 V and V2 = 12 V. The positive terminals are indicated with a + sign, The values for the resistors are: R1 = R5 = 70 Ω, R2 = R6 = 105 Ω R3 = 59 Ω, and R4 = 82 Ω. The positive directions for the currents I1, I2 and I3 are indicated by the directions of the arrows.
I have gone through the algebra a lot of times, with a lot of different equations. I believe my problem is with my application of the loop rule. Please, point out my mistakes here.
Equations I came up with:
1. I2 = I1 + I3
2. V2  I2R2  I1R1  I6R6 = 0
3. V2  I2R2  I3R3  V1  I6R6 = 0
4. V1 + I3R3  I1R1 = 0
