    1. For the circuit of Figure 6.3.1, what is the expected current entering the negative terminal of the source?

    2. For the circuit of Figure 6.3.2, what is the expected current between points B and C?

    3. In Figure 6.3.2, R4 is approximately twice the size of R3 and about three times the size of R2. Would the currents exhibit the same ratios? Why/why not?

    4. If a fifth resistor of 10 k\(\Omega\) was added to the right of R4 in Figure 6.3.2, how would this alter \(I_{Total}\) and \(I_X\)? Show work.

    5. Is KCL satisfied in Tables 6.5.2 and 6.5.4?
