    Suppose that the information content of a packet is the bit pattern 1111000010100101 and an even parity is being used.

    a. What would be the checksum field in a single parity bit scheme?

    b. What would be the value of the checksum field b for the case of a two-dimensional parity scheme? Your answer should be such that a minimum-length checksum is used.

    Information content = 1111000010100101
    Use an even parity

    a) For a Single parity scheme: Add a parity bit at the end to make number of 1's EVEN. There are already eight 1's in the data; hence the parity bit is to be 0.
    Hence the data transmitted incluidng the ...
