Are you asking for some help?

The best I can tell is that he's asking which, if either, of these is an "AC question".

For once I guess I'll just hand out the answer. Q2: Maybe, Q4: Yes.

I'd like to see your proof!

In fact, I'd like to see something that shows you attempted this problem...

Not the first time. Won't be the last.

So what's the answer?

For Q2. For the sake of simplicity assume that all the boxes are 1 kOhm resistors. Now solve for Ix.

Is this a school or a forum?

Both. We pride ourselves on educating and not simply forking over answers to strangers so they can pass their test they didn't study for.

That depends on what distinction you have in mind.

It's a forum, but in the Homework Help subforum the goal is to help students figure out how to solve their own problems and not just give out answers, which seldom accomplishes much in the way of learning.

When someone just posts a problem and makes no effort to show an attempt at a solution, they tend to get a bit of grief -- sometimes more and sometimes less depending on the general mood and how rampant such posts have been recently.

What we want to see is some their best effort at working the problem -- it doesn't have to be correct or complete -- that we can use to see what they are thinking and where they seem to be getting stuck or going wrong. We then try to give them nudges in the right direction.

The original purpose of AAC was a (free) teaching website.

This forum is a bolt on optional extra to provide added value.

Look along the strapline at the top.

Q2: Ix = 4 A.
