For convenience the nodes have been numbered 1,2,3... There are four independent loops. Let the loop currents be I3, I4, I5 and I6 as shown. We can now write the loop equations using Kirchhoff's voltage law as follows:

For loop 1: R3 (I3 - I5) + V42 + R1 I3 = 0

Substituting values: 10000 (I3 - I5) + V42 + 10000 I3 = 0 ...(1)

For loop 2: R4 (I4 - I6) + R2 I4 + V24 = 0

Substituting values: 10000 (I4 - I6) + 10000 I4 + V24 = 0 ...(2)

Adding (1) and (2): 10000 (I3 - I5) + V42 + 10000 I3 +10000 (I4 - I6) + 10000 I4 + V24 = 0

=> 20000 I3 + 20000 I4 - 10000 I5 - 10000 I6 = 0 (as V42 = - V24) ...(3)

For loop 3: R6 I5 + R5 (I5 - I6) + R3 (I5 - I3) + V1 = 0

Substituting values: 10000 I5 + 10000 (I5 - I6) + 10000 (I5 - I3) + 5 = ...
