I apologize in advance for posting a homework problem. I am given this simple BJT circuit as shown below. I have to find the base-emitter voltage with reverse beta equal to 0.5 and forward beta 50. Also a saturation current of 10^-16 A is given, which doesn't sound right to me, but is written anyway in the problem.
I haven't encountered this biasing configuration before and so I have no idea how to proceed except that the collector current can be found to be 12.5 mA using the provided current gain. Aside from that I don't see any reason why the base-emitter voltage would not be 0.7 volts as usual, but the problem states that the correct value is 0.84 volts. I also want to know what this kind of bias setup is called.
