I have no idea what I a doing. I don't know how to deal with the two symbols (the one that looks like a diamond and a circle with an arrow).

If those were replaced with a battery I would be able to solve it, but I can't solve it because I don't know which direction the current is flowing in each branch of the circuit.

Anyways I did KVL for each loop and can someone tell me if I am correct?

Loop 1:

I

Loop 2:

V

Loop3: -3V

Out most loop: i

Can someone let me know if that is correct?

Then what should I do next to solve for i

Loop 1:

I

_{0}(6kΩ) - V_{x}+ i1(8Ω) = 0Loop 2:

V

_{voltage over element of 5A}- i1(8Ω) + V_{x}= 0Loop3: -3V

_{x}- V_{x}= 0Out most loop: i

_{0}- 3V_{x}= 0Can someone let me know if that is correct?

Then what should I do next to solve for i

_{0}?
