and hence, vo = 2i = 2 × 2 = 4 V. Another way is to apply voltage
division, since the 12 V in Fig. 2.42(b) is divided between the 4 and
2 resistors. Hence,

Similarly, io can be obtained in two ways. One approach is to apply
Ohm’s law to the 3 resistor in Fig. 2.42(a) now that we know vo ; thus, (a)

− Thus our circuit reduces to that shown in Fig. 2.42(b). Notice that vo is
not affected by the combination of the resistors because the resistors are
in parallel and therefore have the same voltage vo . From Fig. 2.42(b), we
can obtain vo in two ways. One way is to apply Ohm’s law to get

Another approach is to apply current division to the circuit in Fig. 2.42(a)
now that we know i , by writing

Solution:
(a) The 6k and 12k resistors are in series so that their combined
value is 6 + 12 = 18 k . Thus the circuit in Fig. 2.44(a) reduces to that  eText Main Menu  Textbook Table of Contents  Problem Solving Workbook Contents CHAPTER 2 Basic Laws 49 shown in Fig. 2.44(b). We now apply the current division technique to
