I am trying to determine the mode of operation for the following circuit and find the voltages and currents:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am given that β = 50

I know that V_{EC}> V_{EC,sat}for a transistor in active mode

I applied KVL on the right loop and got:

V_{CC}= 300I_{c}+ 1000I_{c}+ V_{EC}

V_{EC}= V_{CC}- 1300I_{c}

i'm not sure if the above is right or where to go from here. what is throwing me off is the 300 Ω resistor connected to the 1kΩ resistor. is the node between the two B or C? or are B and C equal in this case?

thanks in advance.
