## Homework Statement

Determine IL in the circuit in the Figure.

Figure: http://i.imgur.com/PvKXtjX.png

V1 = ?

Ix = ?

IL = ?

3*Ix current source pointing downwards

7mA current source pointing upwards

7mA current source pointing downwards

7kOhm resistor

1kOhm resistor

## Homework Equations

Ohm's law, KCL

## The Attempt at a Solution

The hint to the problem told me to: "Write a KCL equation at the top node and express any control variables for dependent sources in terms of the unknown node voltage."

So, I wrote the equation and I got:

V1/5kΩ+3(V1/5kΩ)+V1/7kΩ+V1/1kΩ=0

I'm not quite sure where to go from here or how this form would be useful to me. Any pointers on where I should go from here? Thank you
