I am having trouble solving these two problems... some help would be greatly appreciated.

#1 - Find the voltage of v1.

I am unsure what method to use, nodal analysis or (KVL and KCL) combination. i don't know that to do with the 4V at the end... how do i incorporate that into the problem .

( on a side note, what does it mean when the voltage (4V) is given like that... is that a component/circuit element or is it the voltage of the branch? Are the 1 Ohm and 2 Ohm on the right in series or the little branch that is going to the 4 V + side affecting it? Really confused about the presence of the 4V and the meaning of the small extensions.)

#2 - Find the power power delivered by the dependent voltage source.

For this one I think nodal analysis it the way to go but i don't know if i should add the two resistances (1.8 and 4.7) connected to the 200(Idelta) source when i am writing the KCL for the node... some clarification on what steps to take would be nice.

Thanks in advance.
