Current, Power and Total Power

For the circuit shown in Figure 2.24 (attached file), find:
a) The currents i1 and i2.
b) The power delivered by the 3-A current source and by the 12-V voltage source.
c) The total power dissipated by the circuit.

Let R1=25 ohms, R2= 10 ohms, R3= 5 ohms, R4= 7 ohms, and express i1 and i2 as functions of v. (Hint: Apply KCL at the node between R1 and R3.)
