I am asked to solve for v_{X}, P_{DEV BY}i_{S1}, P_{ABS BY}v_{S3}(please see attached figure). We have only covered KCL, KVL, Ohm's law and Power in class. No Thevinen theorem, so it can't be used to help solve.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that current will not pass through the 4 Ohm resistor or v_{S4}. My initial hunch was to solve for i_{Q}in terms of v_{S1}(upper left of figure) and then use that equation to help solve for a KVL with the 3 and 7 ohm resistors and v_{S3}. The result was not pretty and very wrong.
