Unformatted text preview: as the machine with the higher MIPS rating (you can only change the CPI for one of the instruction classes on the slower machine)? 3. (6 points) Consider the following bit pattern: 0x0C000000: (a) What decimal number does this bit pattern represent if it is a two’s complement integer? (b) What MIPS instruction this bit pattern represents? (c) What decimal number does this bit pattern represent if it is a floating point number? Use IEEE 754 standard. 4. (6 points ) Show the minimal MIPS instruction sequence to determine whether a 32 bit number in regi...
