This is my first quarter in university and taking intro to Electrical Engineering. I been doing really good so far with all the problems I've encounter, but this one I just can't solve.
I am having a hard time finding a relationship for I_o, I simply don't see it.
I obtained 3 equations from the 3 meshes:
Mesh i_1: 2(i_2  i_1) + 8(i_2  i_3)  10I_o =0
Mesh i_2: 16 + 4(i_1  i_3) + 2(i_1  i_2)= 0
Mesh i_3: 4(i_i  i_3) + 8(i_2  i_3) + 6I_o = 0
(I_o = 2i_2  i_3 ) < I think that this is wrong or one of the mesh equations is wrong?
I keep getting the wrong answer, which according to the book as stated in the image is 4A.
