In class we discussed the FUPA that for floating point units there were
a spectrum of ``good'' designs that satisfied *A _{F} T_{F} = K_{F}*,
where

Suppose we could show that a similar concept exists for cache. That is,

* A _{c} T_{c}^{2} = K_{c} *

where *A _{c}* is the cache area
and

For a given fixed area *A* (*A= A _{c} +A_{F}*),
find an allocation of

Do not attempt to reduce the solution to simple terms.
