46: VC > VB > VE. For the transistor to be conducting, VB > VE. For the transistor to be bias correctly, VC > VE; if VC < VE, the transistor is saturated. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bipolar_junction_transistor#Regions_of_operation
53: use Ohm's law to find the current through R1. Use Ohm's law to find the resistance of R2 given the current through R1 and the load.
73: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amplifier#Class_C
90: the modulus is the number of counts. Each stage doubles the number of counts in a binary counter.
