Enter the instruction count and the execution time into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Million Instructions Per Second.

## Million Instructions Per Second Formula

MIPS = IC / (ET*10^6)

Variables:

- MIPS is the Million Instructions Per Second (mil-ins/s)
- IC (instructions) is the instruction count
- ET (seconds) is the execution time

To calculate Million Instructions Per Second, divide the instruction count by the product of the execution time, times 10 to the power of 6.

## How to Calculate Million Instructions Per Second?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Million Instructions Per Second.

- First, determine the instruction count.
- Next, determine the execution time.
- Next, gather the formula from above = MIPS = IC / (ET*10^6).
- Finally, calculate the Million Instructions Per Second.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

instruction count = 1200

execution time = 5
