Minor changes were made to Homework 5. The data types were changed from double to single, and the wording was changed from “Add reasonable bypass paths” to “Add any needed datapath and reasonable bypass paths”. Don't be mislead by this change: a correct solution will not have added datapath, just bypass paths. (The reason for making the change was to avoid confusion about the lack of datapath for the last instruction. Datapath would have to be added for the last instruction if it were not dependent on prior instructions.)
