Fig. Q3-4.
Solution:
Current through the 40 resistor is iX.
40 and 80 resistors are in parallel, identical voltage appears across the two.
So, current through 80 resistor is 0.5iX.

Current through 20 resistor and the dependent source, I = 1.5iX.

After converting the current source into a voltage source, we can redraw the circuit as,
