I did search and find a few other threads about saturation but I'm still confused or just not grasping it.

Anyhow, the question for this problem is,

**"Determine if the transistors in the following circuits are saturated."**

Circuit A,

For this one I have the following info,

Vce = 5.1V

Vbe = 0.7V

Vcb = 4.4V

Ic = 55mA

Ib = 1.1mA

Ie = 56.1mA

**********************************************************************************************

Circuit B,

For this one I have this info,

Vce = -3.83V

Vbe = -0.7V

Vcb = -3.13V

Ic = 10.7mA

Ib = 85.2μA

Ie = 10.8mA

I'm pretty sure that should be enough info to determine saturation, if someone could point out the method, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Also, as a side note, those voltages were confirmed from the back of the book, since the answers are given for odd numbered questions,

(my calculations didn't come up with the negative voltages for circuit B, I'm probably not seeing the obvious there...)

My original question is an even numbered one related to those circuits.
