**1. Homework Statement**

Determine the values of the other currents in Figure P1.37, given that i

_{a}= 2 A, i

_{c}=−3 A,

i

_{g}= 6A,and i

_{h}= 1A.

**2. Homework Equations**

∑currents entering a node = ∑currents exiting the node

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I used Kirchoff's Circuit Law on each of the outer nodes:

i

_{f}= i

_{g}+ i

_{h}= 6 + 1 =

**7A**

i

_{a}+ i

_{d}= i

_{f}

2 + i

_{d}= 7

**i**

_{d}= 5Ai

_{c}+ i

_{h}= i

_{e}

-3 + 1 = i

_{e}

**i**

_{e}= -2Ai

_{b}= i

_{a}+ i

_{c}= 2 - 3 =

**-1A**

I think I may have went wrong somewhere, because when I apply KCL to one of the inner nodes I get this:

i

_{e}+ i

_{g}= i

_{d}(?)

-2 + 6 ≠ 5
