**Hamming Distance**

## Detection: Minimum Distance = Number of error bits to be detected + 1

## Correction: Minimum Distance = 2 * Number of error bits to be corrected + 1

## Here,

## Given, Minimum Distance = 2t + 1

## According to the correction formula,

## Number of error bits to be corrected = (Minimum Distance - 1)/2

## Number of error bits to be corrected = (2t + 1 - 1)/2 = 2t / 2 = t (Answer)
