i tried answering it i wasn't able to get it. The answer is given for basis by the way. (ix = 1.176 A) The image is attached to this post. Sorry for the inconvenience, it's my first time to post here.
The Attempt at a Solution
I am not really sure on how to tackle this problem. my professor said we could use Thevenin's Theory to get Ix. What i did was to make the independent current source open, then I was left with the circuit with the 2 resistors and the dependent voltage source. I used KVL giving me loop 1 and an equation 5I1 + 10I1 +2Ix = 0.. that's where i get stuck.. i don't know what to do next..
i hope someone can help me out! thank you very much!
