Will solving some portion of the c cuit give the requested solution?
If so, which method is most efficient for solving just the pertinent
portion of the circuit?
Perhaps the most important obse ation is that, for any situation, some
time spent
thinking about
the problem
in relation
to the various analytical
apprcaches available is time well spent. Examples 4.6 and 4.7 ilustrate the
