Hello everyone,
I'm working on a program for school. I chose my raspberry pi 3 w/ arm CPU as my platform. I'm not familiar with arm assembly except for the simple hello world or addition programs, so you'll have to excuse me if I'm a bit slow on figuring out the tech jargon. So my assignment states the following;

The project wants you to implement multiplication and reduction over a 721-prime. In
order to do that you should implement multi-precision multiplication in radix_2^32. It means you should allocate every 32-bits of field operands inside a 32-bit register.

It might sound stupid, but how do I get started? Any simple examples on what they mean by allocating every 32 bit of field operands? I have no problem doing this by hand or even in CPP, but in assembly, I'm lost. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks

Do it in CPP, compile to assembly code, done.
