Homework Statement



I've been struggling with simplifying this circuit, eliminating a bunch of sources and moving around stuff in general. I'm still very unsure of how to handle nodes with multiple sources though. Like in the picture I've attached. I've got a voltage source and a current source in the same node. The wires leading off into nowhere has a bunch of resistors and what not attached to them.

So can I simplify this node in any way here or is it time to start assembling my KCL equations?

Are those "hanging" wires connected to other things? If so, there's no simple answer. You'll have to show the whole circuit.

.

I don't believe it can be simplified without taking those other components into account.
