## Homework Statement

We have this circuit.

The problem states to find i, or the current through the 3 ohm resistor.

## Homework Equations

V = IR

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've started by shorting out both voltage sources and leaving only the current source in the circuit. I paralleled the 4ohm resistor and the 3ohm resistor nearest the current source to get 12/7 ohms equivalent resistance. Multiplying that by 3A gives me 5.1 volts going through the 4 ohm resistor nearest the current source and 5.1 volts going through the 3 ohm resistor.

Dividing 5.1 volts by 3ohms gives me 1.7A going through the 3 ohm resistor from the current source alone. I'm not sure if did that right and need some help on what to do.
