CRC error detection computes the remainder of a polynomial division of a generator polynomial into a message. The remainder, which is usually 16 or 32 bits, is then appended to the message. When another remainder is computed, a nonzero value indicates an error. Depending on the generator polynomial's size, the process can fail in several ways, however. It is very difficult to determine how effective a given CRC will be at detecting errors.
The probability p that a completely random (bad) message will be incorrectly accepted as valid (not detected as a CRC error), is completely a function of the code rate: p = 2^{r} = 2^{(n  k)}. Where
Use of the CRC technique for error correction normally requires the ability to send retransmission requests back to the data source.

Oops, you are right. I hope it's fixed now. Thank you.
