    Here's the situation:


    I want to calculate the current I (to the far right), Im gonna replace this circuit whit a thevenin-equivalent. So ive short circuited the system between point A nab B and then I calculated the pontentials for node 1,2,4,5 by using node analysis. So node two for example is -2.7V as stated in the picture.

    so Ive used KCL on node 3 and I can write,
    I = I_10 + I_1, is this correct?

    The correct is I=-I10-I1
