## Homework Statement

Find V

_{1}. I attached a picture for the circuit.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is what I did (Refer to Fig. 1):

-2A + (V

_{1})/(50) +(V

_{1}-45)/(1) = 0

But when I looked at the solution my professor posted this is what he did (Redrew Fig.1 as Fig.2):

-2A + (V

_{1})/(50) +(V

_{1}-45)/(1+4) = 0

I thought you were finding the potential difference between V

_{1}and the voltage source? I don't understand why he included the 4Ω resistor. Any help is appreciated!
