(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider the circuit shown in Figure Pl.64. Use repeated applications of Ohm's law, KVL, and KCL to eventually find Vx.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know how to solve the problem (almost). I'm having difficulty understanding the polarity at the left most resistor (5 ohms). I looked at the solution and it says that the positive terminal is on the left and the negative of the right of the resistor. I thought it was the opposite. The diagram of the circuit is attached.
