Circuit problem

Homework Statement


It’s a rather confusing circuit, I’m having problems trying to understand the way current circulates through the circuit.

Homework Equations


Kirchoff’s DC circuits laws only, no resistive simplification neither nodal analysis

The Attempt at a Solution


I’ll attach my intent to do it, and the question itself.
(By the way, I understand that negative current would mean that it is circulating in the wrong direction right?)

4. Translation

The currents I_a and I_b of the circuit have values 4A and -2A in that respective order.
A) Find I_g
B) Find the power dissipated by each resistence
C) Find V_g
D) Show that the power delivered by the current source is equal to that dissipated by every other circuit element.

And why do you think I'm not right about the first one???

Because I can assure you that it is easily readable! I will try to take one more pic again if you want, but you should check an oculist maybe, jk hahaha.

Well, if it's easy for you to read, then great. YOU solve the problem. If you want people here to help you, don't make it hard.

AhHa. When I click on the link instead of the thumbnail, it IS readable.

Now you just have to post one that is in English.

EDIT: Hm ... you must be editing your post, both the link and the thumbnail are gone now.

Great. Now they are not only in Spanish, they are posted sideways. Do you really want anyone here to help you?

Good. Post them rightside up, not sideways.

Your images are not legible, and are mostly scratched out work. This is not an appropriate way to present your work to people who are offering to help you. If your work is not easily legible, they will likely move on to other homework help requests that won't require so much effort to deal with.

Please type in your work so that helpers can read and quote it easily. You can use LaTeX , or take advantage of the formatting options provided in the edit window's header menu bar to to implement subscripts or superscripts (##x_2##, ##x^2##). The ##\Sigma## icon will present a menu of Greek characters and other math symbols that you can select.
