Even Parity of 11001

How to calculate even parity bit of binary number 11001?

Step 1: Gather your Data

Collect the data bits that you want to include in your message. The binary number 11001 consists of 5 (five) bit data sequence.

Step 2: Count the Number of 1s

Count the number of 1s in your data sequence. In our example, there are 3 (three) 1s.

Step 3: Determine Parity

Determine whether the number of 1s in your bits is even or odd. Since we have three 1s in example with 11001, which is an odd number, we need to set the parity bit to 1, to make the total number of 1s even .

Step 4: Append the Parity Bit

Append the parity bit (1) to the end of your number.
