    Sylow subgroup of some factor group.

    Hi. Let $G$ be a finite group. Let $K$ be a subgroup of $G$ and let $N$ be a normal subgroup of $G$. Let $P$ be a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $K$. Is $PN/N$ is a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $KN/N$? Here is what I think. Since $PN/N \cong P/(P \cap N)$, then $PN/N$ is a $p$-subgroup of $KN/N$...

    Maximum allowable probability of error for the (8, 4) Hamming Code

    What is the maximum allowable probability of error is a typical digit in order that the (8, 4) Hamming Code can be used with probability .999 that the receiver will not be misled (i.e., 3 or more errors occur) in a single word?

    Karatsuba method

    For polynomials f(x),g(x) of degree d = 2^(r-1)-1, how do I check that multiplying f(x) and g(x) by the Karatsuba method requires 3^(r-1) multiplications in the field F?
