I read something about coding theory and have difficulty understanding the error probabilities in $ q $Repeat codes. What I am particularly concerned with conceptually is solving problems of the following kind:
ON $ q $-ary repeat code is transmitted symmetrically
Channel, with some probability $ p $ that there will be a little mistake.
What is the probability that it will be $ k <q $ Error with
Transfer code word?
I've seen formulas for certain examples with defined ones $ q $. $ k $, and $ p $, but I can't really deal with the general approach to a problem like this.
