How many total/useable hosts?

1a. /20    Total_______________          Useable_______________

1b. /21    Total_______________          Useable_______________

1c. /28    Total_______________          Useable_______________

1d.  /27     Total_______________          Useable_______________

1e. /30     Total_______________          Useable_______________

Total number of hosts = 2number of zeros Usable Hosts = 2number of zeros - 2

1a. 178.47.188.176/20

11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000

Hosts: Total = 212 = 4096 Useable = 4096 - 2 = 4094

1b. 178.47.188.176/21

11111111.11111111.11111000.00000000

Hosts: Total = 211 = 2048 Useable = 2048 - 2 = 2046

1c. 178.47.188.176/28

11111111.11111111.11111111.11110000

Hosts: Total = 24 = 16 Useable = 16 - 2 = 14

1d. 178.47.188.176/27

11111111.11111111.11111111.11100000

Hosts: Total = 25 = 32 Useable = 32 - 2 = 30

1e. 178.47.188.176/30

11111111.11111111.11111111.11111100

Hosts: Total = 25 = 32 Useable = 32 - 2 = 30
