Am I right on this superposition problem?

    if someone wouldn't mind verifying my solution to this problem by superposition?

    It took me a while but I think I got it.

    I used KVL for the voltage source and got -12 -3i -3i = 0 so i' = 2Amps

    for the Current source I used current division and got both currents to equal 1.5Amps so i'' = 1.5Amps going the other direction

    When adding them both together since i'' was going the other way against i' yielded i'-i'' = 0.5 Amps flowing to the right. so i = 0.5 A. Is that right? I can't see why not but I spent so much time and confusion I can never be sure. Is it right?
