As title say, I am struggling with understanding this problem and how current is flowing through the circuit. I have the answers already, and while the values of Va and Vb (6V and 20V) makes sense to me due to their direct connections to their respective sources, I do not understand how the current I and Voltage Vab was obtained.
I have tried mesh analysis with this as well as redrawing the circuit, with the former giving me incorrect results for I and Vab and me being stuck on the latter in regards to the placement of the 2Ohm resistor.
A question like this seems really easy for this forum so I apologize in advance if this is a dumb question, I am trying to review the fundamentals for DC circuits and their respective analysis methods/theorems before I move onto RL and AC circuits.
I appreciate any help and I can get and thank you in advance.
