    Hello Folks. I am working on a superposition problem. I am supposed to find out the contribution of the current source to Vout.
    I did the math, but, when i went to check my work , i am getting another answer.
    I have found that the current through the 3ohm resistor is 0.77< -5.53Amps.
    Now we all know that when 2 resistors are in parallel , the current going through them is the same.
    When i tried to figure out the current through the 2 ohm resistor ( the 2 ohm resistor on the far right), I got the current going through it to be 1.16< -5.53Amps.
    I am confused as to why I got a different current value.
    Can you please tell me why I got a different value?
    Thank You
