Similar to the above prob...

cache access time is 100ns. main memory access time is 1000ns, hit ratio is .9, find mean access time?

Answer is: .9*100ns+.1*1000ns = 190ns....

Answer plz

You are correct.

For this type of problem, you should read a probability book.

Discrete Mathematics and its Applications, by Kenneth H. Rosen, McGraw-Hill, Inc., New York
[5.3]

or

chapter 1 is posted on the site. I think chapter 1 may be enough for similar problems , like the ones above.

Good luck.
