Exercise 1:
(a) How many characters can be encoded with the 3-bit codes? (b) To encode 100 characters, at least how many bits are required? (c) For a character set with n number of characters, what is the minimum number of bits required so that all characters can be given different values?

Exercise 2:
Assume six Chinese characters are placed in a 6×6 table and in particular in the 6 positions specified below, what binary values can be assigned to these 6 characters according to the given two-dimensional code space?
