Problem 1.  Let  GF(24) = GF(2)[X]/(X4+X+1)  and let  a = X mod X4+X+1.   Let   V = (g(x)) be the  (15,5)  BCH code given by 

g(X) = LCM( m1(X), m3(X), m5(X) ),

mi(X)  denotes the minimum polynomial of  ai.
Note:  If you have not installed the symbol font on your web browser, then the above alpha's will look like a's.
