- Homework Statement
- Use Kirchhoff's law to deduce the value and direction of the current I.

- Relevant Equations
- Current entering a point is equal to current exiting a point

3 A+ 2 A = 7 A+ I

I = -2A

How the current can be in negative direction? If the sign if negative, doesn't it mean that the current will move towards the point P? Also If I am taking the 2A to be positive then Kirchhoff's law isn't satisfied as 5A≠7A
