    I've attempted this but I'm not sure if I have the right answers or not, questions are as follows:

    For all three circuits,

    My answers were as follows:
    1) Vin = 0.533V
    2) Vin = -130V
    3) Vin = 7.677V

    thanks for your help!

    Without actual circuit values other than Vout=7V and duty cycle=21%, it's hard to give a answer ..

    Since first circuit is a buck type I would expect Vi to be greater than Vout - 0.333 volts seems wrong - maybe you meant 33.3V

    Second is a boost type - at 21% duty cycle expect Vin to be only slightly less than Vout - say around 6V. I doubt -140V is correct.

    Not sure about the third - you could try a simulation and watch what happens with parameter changes. It's obviously negative output with positive input - buck behaviour? Say Vin=30V ????

    No simulator?
