1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations See Image 3. The attempt at a solution I am confused where to start this problem. Obviously i need to get at the DC load line for Q1. But the problem is that I was taught in class that the DC load lines intercepts for a transistor are x-intercept Vcc and y-intercept Vcc/(Re+Rc). But Q1 has no Re OR Rc! So how am i supposed to find its y-intercept?! Secondly I don't exactly know what open-loop voltage gain is, what is "open-loop" referring to? The voltage gain without the feedback loop? I am just unsure how to analyze the circuit like this? Lastly, is by "closed loop gain" do they just mean the overall gain of this exact circuit? Any help in guiding me through part a, b or c would be greatly appreciated!
