Table 7-2 Practice using subnet masks

 

That brings us to a fun way of explaining subnet masks. Suppose all the tall sticks shown in Figure 7-8 belong to the same large network that has been subnetted. The short stick represents the subnet mask for all subnets. How many subnets are in the network? Which sticks belong in the same subnet as Stick 5? As Stick 6?
