Consider all four-digit numbers that can be created from the digits 0-9 where the first and last digits must be even and no digit can repeat. Assume that numbers can start with 0. What is the probability of choosing a random number that starts with 8 from this group? Enter a fraction or round your answer to 4 decimal places, if necessary.

The first and last digits should be even. Hence, Total number of numbers possible

\(\displaystyle={5}\cdot{4}\cdot{8}\cdot{7}={1120}\)

Total number that starts with

\(\displaystyle{2}={4}\cdot{8}\cdot{7}={224}\)

Hence, P(Stars with 2)

\(\displaystyle=\frac{224}{{1120}}=\frac{1}{{5}}\)

We will now add support for register-memory ALU operations to the classic five-stage RISC pipeline. To offset this increase in complexity, all memory addressing will be restricted to register indirect (i.e., all addresses are simply a value held in a register; no offset or displacement may be added to the register value). For example, the register-memory instruction add x4, x5, (x1) means add the contents of register x5 to the contents of the memory location with address equal to the value in register x1 and put the sum in register x4. Register-register ALU operations are unchanged. The following items apply to the integer RISC pipeline:
a. List a rearranged order of the five traditional stages of the RISC pipeline that will support register-memory operations implemented exclusively by register indirect addressing.
b. Describe what new forwarding paths are needed for the rearranged pipeline by stating the source, destination, and information transferred on each needed new path.
c. For the reordered stages of the RISC pipeline, what new data hazards are created by this addressing mode? Give an instruction sequence illustrating each new hazard.
d. List all of the ways that the RISC pipeline with register-memory ALU operations can have a different instruction count for a given program than the original RISC pipeline. Give a pair of specific instruction sequences, one for the original pipeline and one for the rearranged pipeline, to illustrate each way.
Hint for (d): Give a pair of instruction sequences where the RISC pipeline has “more” instructions than the reg-mem architecture. Also give a pair of instruction sequences where the RISC pipeline has “fewer” instructions than the reg-mem architecture.
