Homework Statement
Determine the value of the voltage Vx
across the 3A current source.
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I am really confused about how to do it. What I thought of is to find the voltage across the 4 ohm resistance which is 12 V. I though of subtracting that from the power sources.
But I am not sure which power source should be positive and which one should be negative?
Should I just assume the bigger 6V to be positive just because it is the bigger power source?
I might be completely wrong on this one. So please help me. This is not really a homework problem, this is in one of my practice tests, so I would appreciate any proper explanation I can get, rather than vague hints.
Thank you.
