Q1: Suppose we are building an 8 X 2 bit memory chip out of D-latches.
a. How many address lines will be required?
b. Draw the decoder circuit that the address lines will feed into.

a. Suppose that we write the data item D=11 to address A=00. Will our circuit modifications cause problems with the write? If so, explain what, where, and why they'd occur.
b. Suppose that we read the data item at address A=01. Will our circuit modifications cause problems here? If so, explain what, where, and why.
