The quotient rule for logarithms with base b is given by: \(\displaystyle{\log{{b}}}{x}-{\log{{b}}}{y}={\log{{b}}}{\left(\frac{{x}}{{y}}\right)}\)
For example, \(\displaystyle{\log{{20}}}-{\log{{5}}}={\log{{\left(\frac{{20}}{{5}}\right)}}}={\log{{4}}}\)
0

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.

The close connection between logarithm and exponential functions is used often by statisticians as they analyze patterns in data where the numbers range from very small to very large values. For example, the following table shows values that might occur as a bacteria population grows according to the exponential function P(t)=50(2t):
Time t (in hours)012345678 Population P(t)501002004008001,6003,2006,40012,800
a. Complete another row of the table with values log (population) and identify the familiar function pattern illustrated by values in that row.
b. Use your calculator to find log 2 and see how that value relates to the pattern you found in the log P(t) row of the data table.
c. Suppose that you had a different set of experimental data that you suspected was an example of exponential growth or decay, and you produced a similar “third row” with values equal to the logarithms of the population data.
How could you use the pattern in that “third row” to figure out the actual rule for the exponential growth or decay model?
