Question details

Please show steps on how you got to the answer4. Consider two machines one with and one without division hardware. Consider a program which involves 30% of the computations to be division, 10% multiplication and 60% the rest. Machine 1 with division hardware can perform division quite fast. The number of cycles for each class of instruction is: Division (8 cycles), multiply (6 cycles) and rest (4 cycles). Machine 2 has no division hardware and thus division has to be implemented (by repeated subtraction) using software macros and thus requires 32 cycles. Both machines are operational at 500MHz. Find the MIPS ratings for each of the machines.
