Thevenin equivalent help

  1. Apr 20, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Compute the values of the Thévenin equivalent seen by the 20 kΩ resistor using circuit analysis techniques. Draw the equivalent circuit and list the values.

    2. Relevant equations
    Nodal analysis
    mesh analysis

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know a Thévenin equivalent is an ideal voltage source and one resistor, but We haven't been taught how to reduce a circuit the appropriate way. I would try to reduce using series/parallel, but that only reduces the 10k and 8.2k resistors.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    There is no 20 kΩ resistor in the picture.
