Assume that the probability that a bit in a data unit is corrupted during transmission
is p. Find the probability that x number of bits are corrupted in an nbit
data unit for each of the following cases.
a. n = 8, x = 1, p = 0.2
b. n = 16, x = 3, p = 0.3
c. n = 32, x = 10, p = 0.4
0
probability that x number of bits are corrupted in an n bit data unit = $\binom{n}{x}{p}^{x}(1-p)^{n-x}$
