(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

vT = 10.3[V], vW = -7.6[V], vX = -8.4[V], vY = -9.5[V], vZ = 1.9[V]

iM = 3.3[mA], iN = 24.1[mA], iP = 15.2[mA], iQ = -18.5[mA], iR = 5.6[mA], iS = -8.9[mA]

2. Relevant equations

P = vi or P = -vi

mA = miliamps

3. The attempt at a solution

Well I used the passive convention and so when the current flow was going from the positive terminals to the negative I used P = vi. And when current flow was going from the negative terminal to the positive I used P = -vi.

I can't seem to get the right answer..

Apparently the right answer is

Summation of Power Delivered = 315.xx [mW]

Summation of Power Absorbed = 315.xx [mW]

I am not getting these answers when I add up my positive and negative power values...

Could someone please explain how I would work my way around the circuit schematic to solve this problem and if possible the solution as well

Thanks
