Part II (8 marks)

In this individual assignment, you are required to write an assembly program using MIPS 32 assembly language. You can use QtSpim (http://spimsimulator.sourceforge.net/) or any other MIPS simulator to test your program.

Instruction 

Write a program that performs the following tasks: 

(i) Print out your name and ID, and (ii) Solves the following equation:

 

Y = gN + M – (2 Í k) 

where 

M = a user defined number, 1 ≤ M < 100

 

N = a user defined number, 2 ≤ N ≤ 4

 

 g = the first 3 digits of your ID

 

 k = the last 4 digits of your ID.

For example, if your ID number is 1901234, then g = 190 and k = 1234. Prompt the user for inputs M and N. Add comments to your program to show your understanding of the codes.
