# Homework Help: Help in a channel coding question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider a particular channel coder that has a generator matrix G =[1 1 1 1 1]
1 -Generate all the allowable codewords for c . What do you think this code is called?
2- What is the minimum distance for this codeword? Describe how it might work to correct errors.

2. Relevant equations

c=m*G = [m*p m*I]

3. The attempt at a solution
I know the 1st part for the question which is 2 allowable codewords 00000 , 11111 . but i tried looking for what these codes are called I couldn't find a name for them ! or is he meaning the name of the channel coder ?
the 2nd part I got the minimum distance to be 5 since that we only have 2 allowable code and the change in them is 5 , I don't know how to describe how they might correct an error so if u could please help me in this part as well .

Please notify me if u think my answers are wrong as well

many thanks
