Packet error rate

100, 16 bit data packets are transmitted over a RF link. The probability of a single bit error is 0.01, what is the probability of recovering the original messaged if only 20 packets out of the 100 need to be received error free.

100 packets x 16 bits =1600bits
1600bits x0.01 = 16 bits will have an error.

I’m unsure of the next stage.
