1. Homework Statement
For the following circuit, use node-to-datum analysis to find the nodal voltages V1, V2, V3.

[tex]
{\mathop{\rm V}\nolimits} _S = 9V,\;R_A = 3W,\;R_B = 4W,\;R_C = 6W,\;I_S = 3 A
[/tex]


2. The attempt at a solution

[tex]
\begin{array}{l}
Node\;\;V_1 \;\; \Rightarrow \;\;V_1 = 4V \\
\\
Node\;\;V_2 \;\; \Rightarrow \;\frac{{V_2 - 4}}{3} + \frac{{V_2 }}{7} + \frac{{V_2 - V_3 }}{3} = 0 \\
\\
Node\;\;V_3 \;\; \Rightarrow \;\frac{{V_3 - V_2 }}{3} + 3 = 0 \\
\\
7\left( {V_2 - 4} \right) + 3V_2 + 7\left( {V_2 - V_3 } \right) = 0 \\
7V_2 - 28 + 3V_2 + 7V_2 - 7V_3 = 0 \\
17V_2 - 28 - 7V_3 = 0 \\
17V_2 - 28 - 7\left[ {V_2 - 9} \right] = 0 \\
17V_2 - 28 - 7V_2 + 63 = 0 \\
10V_2 = - 35 \\
\Rightarrow \underline {V_2 = - 3.5V} \;\; \\
V_3 = - 3.5 - 9 = \underline { - 12.5V} \\
\end{array}
[/tex]

Can someone please check my working?
Thanks.
