I am totally lost when it comes to assembly language. My teacher just decided one day at the end of this semester to give us a programming assignment in assembly language and has barely taught us anything. I have to use five subroutines: main, add, subtract, multiply, divide and cannot use any global variables (no .BLOCK variables). main should read in the two values and pass them as parameters to the other 4 subroutines. My addition and subtraction work fine, but multiplication and division i have no idea on. I am still pretty confused on stacks and haven't been able to find much info on them in this format of assembly language. Any help would be appreciated.

```
BR main
