In your calculation shown, what label does 16 have? What label does 96 have? (For example, instruction cache or data cache)

Why do you multiply by 4 or 2?

Finally, now that you've labeled those items, why would a program only note one of the 16s, and none of the 96s?

I wager you'll learn a fair bit about what cache does when you read about the answers to these questions.
