Hello! I'm new to the forum, joined to get a better understanding of my Networking class.
I currently have homework that I'm unable to understand and I'm hoping someone here can show me the way to find the answer.
IP/MASk - 172.16.32.0/24
Subnet A - 75 hosts
Subnet B - 10 hosts
Number of bits in the subnet - would this be 8 bit? 255.255.255.0 = 8 host bits. Is that the same thing?
IP mask (binary) - Is IP mask and Subnet mask the same thing? If they are same thing, answer is 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 (/24=255.255.255.0 convert to decimal?)
New IP mask (decimal) - ??? (Why does converting mask to decimal give a "new" mask?)
Maximum number of usable subnets (including the 0th subnet) - ??? (no clue on this)
IP subnet - ??? (no clue)
