1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Treat the circuit as a two node problem and determine the voltage between the nodes.
Express Ix and the current through the 6k resistor in terms (as functions) of the current Il and use KCL

2. Relevant equations
KCL and ohms laws

3. The attempt at a solution

I used KCL to fin the currents of Ix and Il and the current I going through the resistor 6k. but all of them were actual values. I found the voltage drop accross the 6k resistor which is the voltage for the whole circuit sense it is in parallel.

Re: Kcl

Show your work and we will tell you where you are going right or wrong.

Re: Kcl

use nodal anaylsis, since the voltage across all of them is the same. Show us what you tried, and we will try to help

Re: Kcl

You could combine all the parallel current sources together to simplify the circuit tremendously.
