    Yes, but that is in the next chapter

    Then you must have covered some other method(s). How about current dividers? KVL around a loop? Or, if you answered part (b) first and found the voltage ##v_o##, could you then find the currents?

    Yes, KVL around a loop, but i dont know the current

    -1.5 + i1 + i2 = 0
    -1.5R + 100i1 + 150i2 = 0

    Write the equation that shows: voltage across the 100Ω = voltage across the other pair
