## Homework Statement

The problem is in the attached image. I can't figure out what is going on. The circuit as given is at the top, I have circled what I am trying to find.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I used the junction law to find the current through the 3 ohm resistor to be 8 amps. Then I took three loops of the system and applied kirchhoffs voltage law, and solved the system of three equations and 3 unknowns, but it's inconsistent. I don't see where I am going wrong but I suspect it has something to do with my loops.

No matter how I do this, it always works out to be impossible?

Thanks
