Computing Speedup & Efficiency

If I have 100 processors for a computation with 5% of the code cannot be parallelized, how do I compute the speedup and efficiency?

Solution Preview

<br>Speedup is defined as the time it takes a program to execute in serial (with one processor) divided by the time it takes to execute in parallel (with many processors).
<br>The formula for speedup is:
<br><br> S = ...

Solution Summary

Computing Speedup & Efficiency is shown.
