Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you get the general idea right, you want to rearrange it in a form such that its i*(some resistor exprssion)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what are you confused about

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you get these 4 equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0technically KCL is there too but that is just a result of ohms law
