2 (20) Your first name(textyal message) is to be transmitted using M-ary system. a) Encode your first name into a sequence of bits using ASCII coding (without any error bits: 7-bits encoding, and English characters be used). How many bits are there in the message? b)Using 8-ary system, represent the message as sequence of symbols (hint:use any representation for symbols such as s 1 , s 2 etc.) c) If 16-ary system is used, how many symbols are generared to represent your name (round it to an integer number)? d) Now, the communication system, to be used to transmit the message in part(a), can support 1000 characters/s. Then, calculate the bit rate of the communication system. e) Calculate the symbol rates of the communication system when 8-ary and then 16-ary systems are used. f) Calculate the minimum bandwith (without ISI, with raised cosine filterig) required for the
