I'm having some problems finding the value for Vx. So far I have found the mesh current equations for all of the loops, and all that's left is Vx. Can someone help me find a starting point for this?

The fact that you can not find Vx tells me that you don't have mesh currents.I'm having some problems finding the value for Vx. So far I have found the mesh current equations for all of the loops, and all that's left is Vx. Can someone help me find a starting point for this?
I didn't say I have the currents, I said I have the equations. The problem comes in at the end of my third KCL that isThe fact that you can not find Vx tells me that you don't have mesh currents.
Nice try though.
What is that equal to?I didn't say I have the currents, I said I have the equations. The problem comes in at the end of my third KCL that is
8(IyI3) + 6(IyI2)+3Vx
My problem is that I don't know what I'm supposed to substitute in for Vx.
These are not equations, they are expressions. Equations involve this thing called an equals sign.So I labeled the first box I1, upper mid box is I2, lower mid is I3, and right box is I4. There is a supermesh at I2 and I3. I go clockwise
I1 = 4 (A)
KCL at SuperMesh
3(I3I1)2+5(I2)+6(I2I4)+8(I3I4)
KCL at I4 is
8(IyI3) + 6(IyI2)+3Vx
KVL for the dependent current source is
Iy=(I2I3)/7
