## R-ary Entropy Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
R-Ary Entropy = Entropy/log2(Symbols)
Hr[S] = H[S]/log2(r)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Functions Used
log2 - Binary logarithm function (base 2), log2(Number)
Variables Used
R-Ary Entropy - The R-ary entropy is the entropy of number of different symbols used in the code-alphabet.
Entropy - (Measured in Bit per Second) - The Entropy is defined as the average amount of information conveyed by an event, when considering all possible outcomes.
Symbols - The Symbols represents the number of different symbols used in ode alphabet.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Entropy: 1.8 Bit per Second --> 1.8 Bit per Second No Conversion Required
Symbols: 3 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Hr[S] = H[S]/log2(r) --> 1.8/log2(3)
Evaluating ... ...

## R-ary Entropy Formula

R-Ary Entropy = Entropy/log2(Symbols)
Hr[S] = H[S]/log2(r)

## What can be the unit of R-ary entropy?

unit can be given by r-ary units/symbol. For example, If there is a ternary code the units will be ternary units/message symbol.

## Where is R-ary codes are used?

In telecommunication, an r-ary code is a code that has r significant conditions, where r is a positive integer greater than 1. The integer substituted for n indicates the specific number of significant conditions, i.e., quantization states, in the code. For example, an 8-ary code has eight significant conditions and can convey three bits per code symbol
