Go to Appendix C: "Integer Instruction Set". Also, for determining which register name corresponds to a given number, see Figure 1.2.

--------------------------------------------

Now, specifically for the instruction you gave:

10101101001010100000000000000000

This can be split up as follows:

101011|01001|01010|0000000000000000

The first 6 digits specify the opcode: 101011 refers to the "Store Word" instruction or sw. So we're looking at something like:

sw rt offset(rs)

where the register rs is specified by the 5 bits after the opcode:

01001

This binary number corresponds to 9 in decimal. Looking at Figure 1.2, the register's name for 9 is \$t1

and the register rt is specified by the 5 bits after that:

01010

This binary number corresponds to 10 in decimal. Looking at Figure 1.2, the register's name for 10 is \$t2

The remaining 16 bits are the "immediate" or offset.

Thus, the assembly for this machine instruction would be

sw \$t2, 0(\$t1)

Please let me know if you'd like additional clarification or if you have any questions.

Thanks,
