1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
2. Relevant equations v_{o} = G*v_{s} where G = ((R_{1}+R_{2})/(R_{2}) therefore, v_{o} = v_{s} * ((R_{1}+R_{2})/(R_{2}) would v_{o} be independent of R_{s} ? 3. The attempt at a solution I assumed it was a Non Inverting Op Amp...but I haven't come across one with (two?) input resistances? I'm not sure where to go with it. I began to use the equation I have above, but I don't think it's right. I think (or I keep telling myself) that I have to use R_{s} or R_{x} in part a somehow. For part b) I believe I have to figure out the linear range of R_{x}, which should be doable. So I'm not worried about that, assuming what I'm thinking is correct... If anyone can help thanks! If not, thanks anyways!

One question that may help  What is the voltage at the + input of the Op Amp. Is it 750 mV, or something else?

EDIT: phyzguy had the same thought.

OpAmp related question
I solved it, I had to solve for a noninverting (positive) input voltage (v_{p}) first and then created a "new" circuit. Using that circuit I found the output voltage using that equation I listed above while replacing v_{s} with v_{p} .
I got v_{p} = [(80k/(80k+20k)]*750 mV = 600 mV then v_{o} = [(3.3k+46.2k)/3.3k]*600 mV = 9000 mV It feels good to figure my own answer out...lol EDIT: I didnt refresh, so I didn't see your guys replies. Thanks all! :)
