Two more chapters to go, then I'm switching over to straight problems/ADAPT.

Taking this and ST in October, and I'm feeling a lot more comfortable with the LC material for the time being.

ASM PE 2 #16 (newest edition)

I got the right answer (2.37), but my question is how we know to assume that beta is 1. Do we always assume it is 1 if it isn't given or information that would allow us to calculate beta isn't given?
