This question already has an answer here:
I think I mostly understand how subnetting/subnet masks work. However, there is one example that tripped me up while doing some practice questions.
With a subnet address like 188.8.131.52 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.128, I understand that the possible IP addresses for this subnet range from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11.
However, what about a subnet address like 18.104.22.168 that has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.192? What does this notation imply? I'm confused about this particular address because the last octet of this address is non-zero.
If I'm correct, this mask allows for 62 hosts in the network. Is 22.214.171.124 one of the hosts in this network, or are the possible IP address for this subnet 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52?
Thanks in advance.
