    the work i did on that sheet is completely wrong.

    I know that Ic = Ia + Ib

    but can someone help me set up the equations for the two loops please! I cant seem to figure it out and its frustrating me!

    the answer is supposed to be Ic = (RbE1 + RaE2) / RaRb + RaRc + RbRc

    Write the KVL equation for the "left loop".

    Write the KVL equation for the "right loop".

    Write the KCL equation for either junction.

    Yes. Algebra is involved.
