    The picture says it all!
    my results were Vx = 20 V
    Req = 2.079 ohms
    i = 4 A

    I'm not sure if they are correct though.

    Req is correct.

    What did you get for Vx?

    i think i is 5 A now that I resolved and vx is 6.66667 but multisim says i is 8.67 A

    Multisim has i @ 8.67? You might want to re-check your connections.

    Attached is your circuit redrawn in a simple form that still has your three questions illustrated.

    Post your multisim diagram.
