Elleana is planning to join a DVD club and is investigating the options for membership. Option 1 is a $20 membership fee and $1.25 rental charge for each DVD rented. Option 2 has no rental fee and charges $2.50 for each DVD rented. How many DVDs would Elleanna have to rent in order for the total cost of Option 1 to be equal to Option 2?

Let y be the total cost and x be the DVD's rented. Option 1 has a total cost of:
y=20+1.25x
Option 2 has a total cost of:
y=2.50x
Equate the two costs and solve for x:
2.50x=20+1.25x
1.25x=20
x=16
So, Elleana has to rent 16 DVD's in order for the total cost of Option 1 to be equal to Option 2.

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.

Here’s an interesting challenge you can give to a friend. Hold a $1 (or larger!) bill by an upper corner. Have a friend prepare to pinch a lower corner, putting her fingers near but not touching the bill. Tell her to try to catch the bill when you drop it by simply closing her fingers. This seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. After she sees that you have released the bill, it will take her about 0.25 s to react and close her fingers-which is not fast enough to catch the bill. How much time does it take for the bill to fall beyond her grasp? The length of a bill is 16 cm.
