## Homework Statement

Solve using the Mesh-current method. Determine the current magnitudes and the voltages across all elements

## Homework Equations

i=v/r

i1+i2+i3..=0

## The Attempt at a Solution

loop 1:

16(i3-3)+25i1-5i2=12

loop2:

4i1-5i2=15

1) i1=5/9i2-1

substituting 1) into loop2 gives

-25/9i2+5+16i2=-12

i2=1.1344

substituting i2=1.1233 into 1) gives i1=4.672

Can someone show me where I'm going wrong? I think I messed up the signs somewhere, I tried it a few ways and can't get it to satisfy KCL after I check my answer.
