Suppose that a computer using a direct mapping cache has a main memory size of 1M x 16 and a cache memory consisting of 256 lines where each cache line contains a block of 8 words along with a corresponding tag.
Give the sizes of the tag, line and the word fields (in bits)
To which cache line will the memory reference x3E6A5 map? What would
be the corresponding tag value?
