No. Why do you think this is a solvable problem?

Only if you define the exact coding scheme used. There are MANY Hamming codes and many more transmission protocol schemes employing them.

This is like asking, "Can you tell me the make and model of my car if the number of tires it has is three, assuming that I am not off by more than one?"

Is this homework? It sure looks like it. If so, I can move it to the Homework Help forum where it will get more attention from the folks that like to help with homework. But be forewarned, you are expected to show YOUR efforts to solve the problem.

Hi,

Yes, usually when a question like this is asked it is after some material has been handed out at least a pdf file. The pdf file will contain the variant that is needed to solve the problem, and show methods of calculation.
