## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

Ohm's Law: v = iR

KVL: ∑ V = 0

KCL: ∑ I = 0

Linearity: kiR = kv

## The Attempt at a Solution

Okay, so to apply superposition, I'm supposed to turn off all independent sources except one. I began by turning off the voltage source, and I then I used KCL to attempt to find the voltage through the resistor with current I flowing through it. I named the resistor that is in series with the voltage source R

_{1}, and the resistor in parallel with the current source R

_{2}.

I

_{s}= (R

_{1}/(R

_{1}+ R

_{2}))I

_{s}+ I

Then I tried to find the voltage attributed to the circuit by the current source:

v = ((R

_{1}/(R

_{1}+ R

_{2}))I

_{s})R

_{2}

Then I turned off the current source, leaving an open circuit and tried to solve for the current from the voltage source:

v

_{s}= i(R

_{1}+ R

_{2})

After this, I have tried plugging in the numbers given in the problem to find values for R

_{1}and R

_{2}, but this didn't work out very well. I don't think I'm setting up or thinking about the problem correctly. Where have I gone wrong?
