Step 2 : Determine the network (or Subnet) where this host Address belongs.
1. Perform a bit-wise AND operation on the IP Address and the Subnet Mask.
Note: 1 AND 1 results is 1. But 0 AND Anything is 0.
2. Express the result in dotted decimal notation.
3. The result is the Subnet Address of this Subnet, is 172.30.1.0
