Given the circuit of the amplifier shown in the uploaded figure, I'm trying to find I

I know this makes sense because the current passing through R

If i were to calculate I

V

R

Considering the input loop of the first stage, V

Using this i got I

Thanks in advance

_{E}(the dc emitter current). For some reason, the book I'm using, when calculating V_{b}which is equivalent to V_{TH}took in consideration the resistances in the emitter which are in parallel with R_{2}(the given solution is also uploaded, check figure 2 please).I know this makes sense because the current passing through R

_{1}and R_{2}is not equal since some current goes through the base. However for the thevenin equivalent circuit shouldn't the part where there's R_{1}and R_{2}be open circuit?If i were to calculate I

_{E}myself I'd do it as follows:V

_{TH}= (15/25.1k)*5.1k = 3.0478VR

_{TH}= R1||R2 = 4064ohmsConsidering the input loop of the first stage, V

_{B}= V_{TH}= I_{B}R_{TH}+ V_{BE}+ I_{E}(R_{E1}+ R_{E2})Using this i got I

_{E}= 5.85mA which is quite close to what the book gave as an answer however I'd like to confirm my doubts.Thanks in advance
