C:20

Speedup according to Amdahl's law is found as :

Speedup   =    1 / [ 1 - f1 - f2  + ..  +( f1 / S1) + ( f2/S2)  + ( f3/S3) .. ]

where f1 , f2 etc.  : fraction of enhancements

          S1 , S2 etc : Speedup corresponding to each fraction of enhancement

Here in question f=0.95

1-f=5%=0.05 and s=⚮

Then speedup=1/(0.05+(0.95/⚮))

                          =1/(0.05+0)=20
