What is the current through the 10 ohm resistor? See figure below.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The equations I got were:

12=10*I_{2}+5*I_{1}

9=10*I_{2}+5*I_{3}

But I am confused as to how to get the last equation from the junction. Would it be I_{1}+I_{2}=I_{3}?

Once you have the three equations you would combine them and solve for I_{2}, right?

Thanks. I appreciate the help.
