Help setting up Loop Analysis

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    KVL

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I called the top left loop i1, the top right loop i2, the bottom right loop i3, and the bottom left loop i4. I have all of these currents going clockwise in my work. An attempt to do loop analysis has left me with the following equations:

    i4=(2Vx)/(1K)
    i1-i2=8mA
    i3=-4mA
    -i2(4kΩ)=Vx

    Upon solving for V0, I got V0=4.71V. Is this answer correct? If not, are my loop equations correct?

    Please let me know if you guys want to see more work. Thanks!

    Check the value of the current source between loops 1 and 2.
