Find v_{x}and i_{x}.

2. Relevant equations

Kirchhoff's Current Law: The algebraic sum of the currents entering a node is zero at any instant:

Σi= i_{1}+ i_{2}+... i_{N}= 0

3. The attempt at a solution

Since it's a current-driven circuit and i_{x}points in the opposite direction of i_{s},

i, where "i_{x}= -i_{s}_{s}" is the current source.

We know that i_{s}= 2 mA, so...i_{x}= -2 mA

... andv_{x}= i_{x}R

sov_{x}= (-2 mA)(47 k ohms) = -94V

Is this right?
