Assume that the 4 data strips (i.e. data blocks) within a certain stripe on a RAID 5 system are designated B0, B1, B2 and B3. The corresponding parity block P for this stripe is computed as the cumulative XOR of the 4 data strips. Block B2 is to be updated and its new contents is designated as B2'. Write down 2 different expressions for the corresponding new parity block P0-3'.
a) (5) (Using equation similar to P0-3 = bit0 ^ bit1 ^ bit2 ^ bit3 (^ denotes XOR operator))
b) (5) (Rearrange to express P0-3' in terms of Block 2, Block 2', P0-3. Show your work.)
