Consider the following scenario:
As a network administrator for a company, you want to configure an IP route between two
routers. Of static and dynamic routing, which is more appropriate?
I need to understand the concept of this for my networking class. Any help is appreciated.

If it really is just two routers for a total of 3 networks (one on each router and a P2P network), then static routing. If those 2 routers are then connected for a chain of several routers/networks then dynamic routing would be better.

For example:

Network A -> Router 1 -> P2P network -> Router 2 -> Network B

Static routing would be the easiest thing to configure/maintain

If it's: 50 networks/routers -> Router 1 -> P2P network -> Router 2 -> 100 other networks/routers then dynamic routing protocols would work best.
