2. Relevant equations

I_1=I_2+I_3

3. The attempt at a solution

I got the following equations by splitting the problem up into the left loop and right loop

Right Loop starting at the negative terminal of the middle battery and going CCW-> 6-I_2(10)-8-I_3(3)

Left loop starting at the positive terminal of the left battery going CW -> 12-5I_1+6-10I_2

I then got the following equations (including the first equation)

10I_2 = -3I_3 -2

5I_1 = 18 - 10I_2

I then solved them but my answers are not the same as in the problem.
