Homework Help: Magnetically coupled inductors an AC circuits

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I've actually uploaded the question.

    When solving problems with magnetically coupled inductors I like to add dependent sources so that I can keep everything straight. My question is when I add the dependent sources does there need to be a specific polarity to them. With the way that AC works I would think that it doesn't matter what polarity you assign them because in the end the angle is what determines the poliarity. I could make it so that when I do the mesh the sources come out positive. Is this the best way to solve this problem or is there another way.
