# Subnet Exercise 04

This page contains one exercise based on IP addressing and subnetting. At first the problem definition and some questions are given. Later, the solution of the questions are given. Please, at first try to solve yourself. When you have finished then look the answers / solutions. If you go forward in this way, I'm sure you do better.

*[Note: Visit Subnetting Index or type http://hubpages.com/_ccna/hub/Subnet to your browser address bar to learn a-to-z of subnetting. Many examples are there to make you a smart master of subnetting.]*

Ans 255.0.0.0

[c]What is the custom subnet mask of that IP?

Ans 255.248.0.0

[d]How many bits are required to make the subnet?

Ans 5

[e]What is the the total number of subnets?

Ans 32

[f]What is the total number of usable subnets?

Ans 30

[g]What is the total number of host addresses?

Ans 524288

[h]What is the total number of usable host addresses?

Ans 524288-2=524286

[i]What is the total number of host bits?

Ans 19

[g]What is the total number of host addresses?

Ans 524288

[h]What is the total number of usable host addresses?

Ans 524286

and this is the right answer for this questions too right?

me is correct

yeah, the custom subnet mask is 255.248.0.0 because the question asks 28 subnets and not 28 hosts

both are wrong...

The correct Answer is

Solution of the above questions:

[a]Which class does the IP belong?

Ans Class A

[b]What is the default subnet mask of that IP?

Ans 255.0.0.0

[c]What is the custom subnet mask of that IP?

Ans 255.255.255.224

[d]How many bits are required to make the subnet?

Ans 19

[e]What is the the total number of subnets?

Ans 524,288

[f]What is the total number of usable subnets?

Ans 524,286

[g]What is the total number of host addresses?

Ans 32

[h]What is the total number of usable host addresses?

Ans 30

[i]What is the total number of host bits?

Ans 5

is this a rite answer i think its not
