Let nq(k, d) denote the smallest value of n for which an [n, k, d]q code exists for given integers k and d with k ≥ 3, 1 ≤ d ≤ q^(k−1)
and a prime or a prime power q. The purpose of this note is to show that there exists a series of the functions h3,q, h4,q, ..., hk,q
such that nq(k, d) can be expressed.
