Yield of beauty-hadron decay electrons in 0--10\% central Pb--Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}} = 5.02$ TeV for the TPC--TOF and TPC--EMCal analyses compared with the pp reference scaled by $\langle T_{\rm AA} \rangle$, obtained from the measured cross section for $\pt < 8$ GeV/$c$, which is extrapolated up to $p_\mathrm{T}= 26$ GeV/$c$ using FONLL. The ratio of the yields using TPC--TOF and TPC--EMCal analyses in the overlapping interval of $3 < \pt < 8$ GeV/$c$ in Pb--Pb collisions is shown in the bottom panel.
