3. The attempt at a solution

First I found the equivalent resistance since the 3 ohm resistor and 6 ohm resistor are in series. 9ohm. Then I did chose the node where the arrow points to as Voc, which is also va.

KVL:

(va+24V)/9ohm=1.33va

I get va to be 2.18

Then looking for Isc, I close the output terminals and then do kcl again on the node on top of the voltage controlled current source

1.33va-isc-24V/9ohm=0

and get isc=0.23

so Rt=2.18/0.23=9.47

The book says

isc=.24 and Rt=-3

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
