Question: a communication link uses a simple repetition code for error...

Question details

A communication link uses a simple repetition code for error correction, where ain information bit T) is sent by a length-5 sequence of zeros, İ.е., 0 (0,0,0,0,0) Likewise, an information bit I, is sent by a length-5 sequence of ones, i.e., 1 → (1,1,1,1,1). Assume that information bits Os and 1s are sent with equal prob- ability and each of the 5 corresponding code bits that are transmitted are received in error independently with probability 0.01. The receiver makes a majority logic decision, where an information bit 0 is decided if 3 or more of the corresponding 5 received code bits are Os and an information bit 1is decided if 3 or more of the corresponding 5 received code bits are 1s. What is the probability of information bit error for this communication link?
