each bit pattern being manipulated has an odd number of Is and a pattern is

principle, we ...
parity bit and stores the resulting nine-bit pattern. When the pattern is later
retrieved, the circuitry checks the parity of the nine-bit pattern. If this does not
indicate an error, then the memory removes the parity bit and confidently returns
Put 0s in the middle four bits of an eight-bit pattern without disturbing the other
