1. Your job is to plan a network. Use network 200.1.1.0.

Choose a mask that will
maximize the number of hosts per subnet.

Q1 Answer
Default class C subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
To calculate the number of subnets, use the formula 2n-2 where n = number of bits
borrowed.
In this question, 7 subnets are needed. By using the formula 2n-2 (remember that
subnets with all 0’s and all 1’s are not allowed), we could deduce that n = 4. (24-2=14
subnets), subnet mask is 255.255.255.240. The remaining bits for hosts are 8 bits – 4
bits = 4bits. Thus, there are 14(by 24-2) hosts available with this subnet mask.

the maximum number of bits can be borrowed from host portion is 8 bits.2. The network might grow to need at most 100 subnets.0 can be used. Determine all subnet masks that meet the criteria. Use network 172.254.255. by using the formula (2m-2) where m = number of bits reserve for host portion. which equal to 254 usable subnets (by 28-2). The remaining bits for host are 16-7 = 9 bits. Your job is to plan a new network.0 and use the same subnet mask for all subnets. Q2 Answer Default subnet mask for Class B is 255. 9 bits for host is 510 (by 29-2).0. We should reserve at least 8 bits for host portion. This means we may borrow 7 bits from host portion. . by using the formula (2n-2). a subnet mask: 255.0 For this Question. with 200 hosts per subnet maximum. Choose a mask and pick enough subnets to use for this topology. we could deduce that n = 7. For maximum 100 subnets. And the remaining bits for subnet are 16-8 = 8 bits. so that more than one subnet mask could be created. since we could use maximum 100 subnets or maximum 200 hosts. It also meets the criteria of the case. thus. It meets the criteria of 200 hosts per subnet.255.0. Thus.16. For 200 host. we could deduce that m = 8.

0. 4.0. 178. Your school acquired a class B address. we could deduce that m = 8. and so the minimum number of bits can be borrowed from host portion is 7 bits.5. by using the formula (2m-2).224 Convert the last octet from the IP address 192. which equal to 510 usable hosts (by 29-2). we find that this IP address should belong to subnetwork 10000000 (the last octet in binary) or 192.0 Here we have 40+24+15 (79) subnets in our network and the maximum number of hosts in a subnet are 220. And the remaining bits for subnet are 16-8 = 8 bits.255. You need to create a subnetting scheme to provide the following:    40 subnets with each subnet 220 hosts 24 subnets with each subnet 90 hosts 15 subnets with each subnet 80 hosts What is the minimum and maximum number of bits can be borrowed? Q3 Answer A class B network is used: 178.3.135. It also meets the criteria of the case. to which subnet would host 192.5.0.0 with subnet mask 255. by using the formula (2n-2).255. By using ANDing operation. the maximum number of bits can be borrowed from host portion is 8 bits.12. For 79 subnets.12.128.12. It meets the criteria: 79 subnets and 220 host per subnet. We should reserve at least 8 bits for host portion. thus.255.255.0. default subnet mask is 255.13.135 belong? Q4 Answer Class C network 192.5. which equal to 254 usable subnets (by 28-2). The remaining bits for host are 16-7 = 9 bits. as the first 3 bits is the subnet ID (224 in decimal = 11100000 in binary).0 with subnet mask 255. we could deduce that n = 7. we have 10000111.224. In a class C network 192.13.0.5.255.12. For 220 host. .5.12.
