Jack, age 52, has been feeling tired lately. He also gets up frequently during the night to urinate and is always thirsty. He makes an appointment with Jodi, the medical assistant, to see his physician. When Jack arrives at the office, Jodi takes his medical history and weighs and measures him. He is \(5^\prime\) and weighs 270 pounds. The physician suspects Jack is exhibiting signs of diabetes. The physician orders tests to be done and asks Jack to return in 3 days for a follow-up visit. Jodi makes the arrangements for the tests and follow-up visit. Researchers are making many advances in diabetic research. List the advances that may be most helpful to Jack.

One of the biggest advance could be an artificial pancreas - in this method, an instrument is measuring sugar level during the whole day and is adjusting insulin level accordingly. Also, there is a lot of new drugs which are still investigated, but it is already known that they protect kidneys and heart.

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.

A wildlife biologist examines frogs for a genetic trait he suspects may be linked to sensitivity to industrial toxins in the environment.
Previous research had established that this trait is usually found in 1 of every 8 frogs. He collects and examines a dozen frogs.
If the frequency of the trait has not changed, what’s the probability he finds the trait in
a) none of the 12 frogs?
b) at least 2 frogs?
c) 3 or 4 frogs?
d) no more than 4 frogs?

At a research facility that designs rocket engines, researchers know that some engines fail to ignite as a result of fuel system error. From a random sample of 40 engines of one design, 14 failed to ignite as a result of fuel system error. From a random sample of 30 engines of a second design, 9 failed to ignite as a result of fuel system error. The researchers want to estimate the difference in the proportion of engine failures for the two designs. Which of the following is the most appropriate method to create the estimate?
A one-sample z-interval for a sample proportion A
A one-sample z-interval for a population proportion B
A two-sample z-interval for a population proportion C
A two-sample z-interval for a difference in sample proportions D
A two-sample z-interval for a difference in population proportions

To monitor complex chemical processes, chemical engineers will consider key process indicators, which may be just yield but most often depend on several quantities. Before trying to improve a process, 9 measurements were made on a key performance indicator. 123, 106, 114, 128, 113, 109, 120, 102, 111. Assume that the key performance indicator has a normal distribution. (a) Find the sample variance s 2 of the sample. (b) Find a \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for \(\displaystyle\sigma{2}\). (c) Find a \(\displaystyle{98}\%\) confidence interval for \(\displaystyle\sigma\).
