Hello everyone!!!

First of all I want to say that i understand the way the book came up with the answers, but I was trying to find an alternative way to answer part 1 and .

correct me if i am wrong, I know that current division for inductors can be applied just like resistors. so my question is: why cant i find i(t) using the division rule: i1(t)= (3/3+6)i(t). so then i(t) = 3i1(t). and find i2(0) = (6/3+6)i(o). If i use the former equations, the answers will be wrong. Can I know what is wrong with this current division method?

Thanks in advance.
