_{o}for this circuit.

Given: i

_{s}= 36 A

## Homework Equations

V = IR

Kirchhoff's laws for current and voltage.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I first noticed that the voltage source is labeled i

_{x}, so I knew I needed to find that first. I tried using the Kirchhoff current law at the top middle junction, but realized that is no help since there are two currents at the junction I do not know. Then I tried using a loop law around the right and outer loops. When doing this I can simplify equations to V

_{o}= 2i

_{x}and V

_{o}= 8i

_{x}which does not make any sense, nor does that help me find i

_{x}.

Once I find i

_{x}, I can use the junction law to solve for the current into the 2 ohm resistor and then solve for V

_{o}.
