INSTRUCTIONS
This comprised of 10 equally weighted questions from Chapters 1 and 2. Answer all 10 questions. Each question is worth 10 points.

 

Exercise 1.9

  1. Assumptions (servers turned off = 45%)
  2. Assumptions (servers in “barely alive” state = 45%)
  3. Assumptions (voltage reduction = 33%; frequency reduction 62%)

 

 

Exercise 1.11

  1. Assumptions (company computers = 8,500; MTTF for each computer = 26 days; catastrophic failure = ½ of computers failing)
  2. Assumptions (extra cost of doubling MTTF per computer = $520)

 

 

Exercise 1.14

  1. Assumptions (increased speedup of FPOs = 3x; FPOs = 31% of original program execution time)
  2. Assumptions (speeding up the FPU resulted in 1.7x slowdown; data cache access = consumes 16% of execution time)
  3. Unchanged

 

 

Exercise 1.15

  1. Unchanged
  2. Unchanged
  3. Unchanged
  4. Unchanged
  5. Unchanged

 

 

Exercise 1.16

  1. Assumptions (percentage of application that is parallelizable = 55%; communication cost = 0)
  2. Assumptions (# of processors = 12; communication overhead per each processor added = 0.72%)
  3. Assumptions (# of processors = 12; 0.72% increase in communication overhead when number of processors is doubled)
  4. Assumptions (communication overhead is increased by 0.72% of the original execution time whenever the # of processors is doubled)
  5. Unchanged

Exercise 2.36

 

 

Exercise 2.40

 

 

find the cost of your paper

recognize the chosen designer characteristics in the various price point categories especially lower ones as they are inspired by designers.

I need my part c for my term project done by end of day friday  at 11:59. I’ve attached parts a and b NOTE you must read them to understand….

 provide a comprehensive analysis of the similarities and differences in the representation of the human form in these early depictions. 

All early civilizations – prehistoric, Near East, Egyptian, Aegean, and Roman – attempted to represent the human figure within their art. Within this essay, provide a comprehensive analysis of the similarities and differences in the representation….

focus on the theoretical and philosophical questions at issue, yet always trying to relate the chosen topic to some specific architectural example, whether built or unbuilt.

It is a history of architecture class. But the paper is a research paper that should be focusing more on architectural theory and philosophy themes and then relate the themes….
