(iii) Pay down the mortgage on the current matrimonial home. (iv) Renovate the kitchen and landscape the property of their current home Required: (9 marks) Select the best answer and briefly indicate (point form) why it is the best response. Briefly explain why the other three responses are not as good as the one you selected Newborn Toys prepaid three years’ rent ($31,500) on January 1, 2018.

Perform local optimization on the following basic block. Assume the registers ti (i=1,…,8) are not used

outside of this basic block. Show in each step the kind of optimization (e.g., algebraic simplification)

and the outcome of this optimization. Apply as many iterations of local optimization as you can.

tl = a -4

12=i * 4

13 = tl [t2]

14 =a-4

15 =i * 4

t6 = 14[15]

17 = 13 * t6

18 = sum + 17

sum = 18

i=i+1
