Can anyone do this question for me i need help.

 

A network needs to be set up with six subnets. Given the IPv4 class C address 192.168.50.0, what subnet mask value should be used? How many hosts can be in each subnet? Explain your answer and use binary representation to show how you calculated the answer.

Write no more than 100 words. You will also need to show numerical working as well, which is not included in the word count.

Two hints:

1. learn to use a online CIDR/subnet calculator

2. trick question: there is no subnet break at 6 subnets.  /30=4 and /29=8 subnets  You will go with the 8

Are you asking for help with a problem or the answer to a homework assignment? I would be willing to help, but I sure in heck am NOT putting my answer to 100 words, or in the form of a haiku , or what ever other stipulation is on the question.  :grinner: Also, if you find you aren't getting the help you were looking for, try helping others on the forum. Pay it forward.

Dave you are over thinking a very simple question. Subnetting is simple if you forget the doing it by hand and expressing it in binary.  That's what the calculator will do for you.

 

"what subnet mask value should be used?"

You can't see I already answered that question for you?  Review my post.  Perhaps the light bulb will light up for you.

 

 

So you are given 192.168.50.0 for your start point.  Do you understand that you have 192.168.50.0 to 192.168.50.255 to work with? 

 

Lets see what you have learned so far: can you use .0 or .255 in your list of usable addresses for this subnet?
