How to solve the next circuit?

Show your attempts at solving this. Start by applying KCL and/or KVL at each node. You do know what KCL/KVL means?

@ApacheKid - thats not helpful!

I have a feeling he was kidding and picked a random whole number but i havent solved this network yet.

For example (via South Park 'AWESOM-O'):
Question:
"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"
Answer: "17"

To the thread starter:
Yes you just need to apply some method of network analysis and that's the usual way to handle these kinds of problems.

I never touch mesh, and this is just a simple 2-node circuit as shown in the attached view. But imagine my surprise when one of the node voltages was shown to be 42! (actually 41.777777). But I was too tired to verify the answer.
Thank you do much for your help. With this I Will fight to solve it

I could verify it later sometime but you seem to have done a good enough job.

Now that you're rested up, have you verified your answer? This problem is the sort that can lead to sign confusion.

I think it was the sign confusion that induced my exhaustion. It seemed this problem was deliberately designed to lead one into making a polarity error (and it may have accomplished its purpose in my case.)

Are you saying that you made a polarity error, that there is not a node voltage near 42 volts?
