Memory Hierarchy 1) You have been assigned the task of computing the sum of 1,000 four-digit numbers as rapidly as possible. You hold in your hands a stack of 1,000 index cards, each containing a single number, and you are in charge of 1,000 expert accountants, each with a calculator. You may choose to use the services of any number of accountants. The accountants are sitting at desks in a cavernous room. The desks are organized into 25 rows and 40 columns. Each accountant is able to pass cards to the four accountants nearest him – in front, in back, to his left, and to his right. a. Describe a fast method of distributing cards to accounts. b. Describe a fast method of accumulating subtotals generated by active accountants into a grand total. c. Explain why 1,000 accountants cannot perform the task 1,000 times faster than one accountant. d.
