(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Find I in the circuit using the superposition principle:

My work so far:

[tex]I\,=\,I_1\,+\,I_2\,+\,I_3[/tex]

This reduces down to:

[tex]16\,V\,=\,I_1\,(8\Omega)[/tex]

[tex]I_1\,=\,\frac{16\,V}{8\Omega}\,=\,2\,A[/tex]

This reduces down to:

[tex]I_2\,=\,-\frac{12\,V}{8\Omega}\,=\,-\frac{3}{2}[/tex]

But how do I solve this circuit?:
