    Hi guys,

    I am not sure if I am approaching this problem the right way, please help me. I need to figure out VE and IE. In order to do this I need to figure out the base current. The 2 sources are a bit confusing. Here is what I have so far:

    The collector is the common point in the circuit. Applying KVL gives me:

    +6V - IB*330k - VBE - IE*1.2k - 6V = 0
    IE = (beta +1) * IB

    From this I can figure out the base current, IE and VE.

    Please let me know if this is correct.

    Thx

    Hi, your KVL is almost correct. All you need to do is to change -6V into +6V.
