Analogue and digital question (really !)

  1. Jan 7, 2008 #1
    [SOLVED] analogue and digital question (really urgent!)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi all; i've got a question:

    Two mobile phone signals were sent a bit at a time along the same wire but the bits didn't get separated. They produced the text message below. What message was being carried by each signal?


    Message 1: ______________

    Message 2: ______________
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've tried things like: Message 1: so r u ok? Message 2:no u
    I know my attempts pathetic, but that's why i came here for! and my attempt may be completely off the mark anyway. I'd really appreciate it if u helped.

    This is...a physics problem?

    You had Message 1 right except an extraneous 'so', I don't know how you got it right and failed to see #2. It's...hard to help and not just give it to you outright but take that as your help I guess: Message 1 is r u ok?
