    binary code

    I just found out that the binary code (23,12, 7) is (n,k,d* = minimum distance).
    I need to find the word error with the probability of bit error p = 0.01.

    Is there a formula to calculate the word error?
    Anybody knows any website that teaches me how to calculate the word error
    or maybe someone knows the formula.

    lot of help

    It means your question had absolutely nothing to do with C++, therefore I, in my capacity as a moderator of these forums, have moved it to a more appropriate place.

    What "binary code"? Are you talking about machine language? I don't see anything binary there...

    Everything in the computer's memory is in binary. Some of it is machine language instructions, some of it is ASCII text (or other character codes), some represents integer or floating-point numbers... The meaning of all this binary data depends on the context. without context, this "random" data will confuse humans and crash computers.

    I need to find the word error with the probability of bit error p = 0.01.
    What? Word error???

    wow well, what you said led me on an interesting trail through google. i can't find a lot of solid information on "word error probability," but a lot of research showed.

    i can see you asked a question that has to do with pure mathematics on a forum of people devoted to a programming language. maybe this isn't the right place to ask that question.

    did find this:

    neat stuff, maybe you should look at a math forum instead. you should translate the concepts to code yourself.
