    Let us take a slightly different example to understand the notion of relative speed. If A walks at 4 Km/hr and B walks at 6 Km/hr, then relative speed of A with respect to B will be 4/6 and B's speed relative to A will be 6/4.

    The problem is simply asking us to use the mentioned simulator and compare the time taken by different adders (adder configurations) to ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution explains the notion of "relative speed" with an intuitive example. Additionally it discusses the things that govern the produced timings.
