    We want to find Vth for the given circuit using nodal analysis. We need to create a supernode. I have drawn the directions the currents. How do I proceed? Please help me out. Thank you

    Cheers

    Consider transforming the 10A supply and the 6Ω resistor into their Thevenin equivalent, then you'll have a loop that you can solve for its current (and then the voltage on the 2Ω resistor).
