Since when did Diychatroom.com turn into alt.electrical.engineering? I used to get so annoyed with all the homework questions (i.e. I have a 1N2222 transistor, biased with a 150K resistor, what is the maximum beta that will allow me to pass this course??).

If this is the actual question tell your teacher to re-write it. It is terribly written as asked.
