A network on the Internet has a subnet mask of
255.255.240.0. What is the maximum number of hosts it
can handle?
Solution
11111111111111111111000000000000
12 bits are available for the hostid ==> 2^12 possible
hostids. However all-0\'s and all-1\'s are reserved, so
The maximum number of hosts on this subnet is 2^12 - 2
= 4094 hosts.
