Well what do you actually have a problem with? What did you try? Is there something you don't understand? –  AndrejaKo Sep 14 '12 at 9:50
We can help you work thru your homework problems, but we are not here just to do them for you. You should define all the variables you use, use proper sentences, make the image a reasonable size, show what you have already done to try to solve the problem, and explain exactly where you are stuck. In the mean time this question should be closed. –  Olin Lathrop Nov 7 '12 at 13:14

1. Count all the sources ($V$ and $I$), resistances and dependent sources first.
