    The circuit I have to solve is in the attached pdf. I know how to solve it if the current source was in the middle but I have no idea how to solve this with the current source on the side. Could someone give me a little help?

    You should first attempt to write the mesh equations and post your work here for checking or further assistance.

    You'll note that the left hand mesh current is already known - since that loop is driven by a current source. It remains to then write the mesh equation for the right hand loop. Don't be put off by the controlled voltage source - try writing the equation with the given parameters.

    thanks for the help thats all i needed to know. I wasn't sure if you could say that the current from the current source is the same as the mesh current but thanks for clearing that up for me!
