An analog baseband signal, band limited to 100 Hz, is sampled at the Nyquist rate. The samples are quantized into four message symbols that occur independently with probabilities $${p_1}$$ = $${p_4}$$ = 0.125 and $${p_2}$$ =$${p_3}$$. The information rate (bits/sec) of the message source is ____________________
