I have a general understanding of subnetting. For example given a question\nsuch as:\n\nYou have this network 192.168.0.0/24. You must create at least 4 subnets\nthat can accomodate up to 20 hosts each. What subnet should you assign to\nthe hosts on your network?\n\nThis is an actual question I have done on a practice exam. I can break down\nto binary and come up with the 255.255.255.224 subnet mask using simple math\n(2 to the x power - 2 = z, x being bits, z being number of hosts, or\nsubnets, depending on what your trying to figure out) But I don't fully\nundertand the application of this? when it says "what subnet should you\nassign to the hosts on your network?" it seems they mean that that one\nsubnet 255.255.255.224 should be assigned to ALL hosts on ALL those\nsubnets??? is that correct? I was thinking that each individual subnet mask\nwould need to be used on each individual subnet??? Meaning if you are taking\n3 extra bits from your hosts bits to use as additional subnets then wouldn't\neach of those subnets have its own unique subnet mask? and wouldn't you need\nto assign each unique subnet mask to the hosts on that unique subnet?? ..\nand NOT have all hosts among the 3 different subnets have the SAME subnet\nmask?\n\nHopefully I asked that clearly... Any info is greatly appreciated.\nThanks.
