2. Multiply the polynomials P1 = (x^{5} + x^{2} + x) by P2 = (x^{7} + x^{4} + x^{3} + x^{2} + x) in GF(28) with irreducible polynomial (x^{8} + x^{4 }+ x^{3} + x + 1). The result is

a) x^{4}+ x^{3}+ x+1

b) x^{5}+ x^{3}+ x^{2}+x+1

c) x^{5}+ x^{4}+ x^{3}+x+1

d) x^{5}+ x^{3}+ x^{2}+x

### View Answer

^{8 }+ x

^{4 }+ x

^{3}+ x + 1) we get x

^{5}+ x

^{3}+ x

^{2}+x+1.
