Alternating Bit Protocol

The alternating bit protocol is described in section Recovering from transmission errors

Performance of the alternating bit protocol
Consider an implementation of the alternating bit protocol that is used on between two hosts that are connected via a direct link. That link has a bandwidth of kbps and a propagation delay of msec.

If the data frames are 10,000 bits long and the control frames 100 bits long, what is the maximum throughput achieved by this protocol expressed in bytes/sec?
