** 1 ** In Chapter 3 you learned how to turn transistors ON and OFF. You also learned how to calculate the value of resistors in amplifier circuits to set the collector DC voltage to half the power supply voltage. To review this concept, examine the circuit shown in Figure 8.1.

Use the following steps to find the value of R_{B} that will set the collector DC voltage (V_{C}) to half the supply voltage (V_{S}):

1. Find I_{C} by using the following equation:

2. Find I_{B} by using the following equation:

3. Find R_{B} by using the following equation:
