with 255.255.252.0.
you will have 62 subnets with 1022 hosts on each subnet
they should connect
these will be on the same network
 172.31.0.1 to  172.31.61.254
next network
 172.31.62.0 to  172.31.127.254
and so on

With the mask 255.255.252.0, these two will be on different subnets -- the first on subnet 172.31.53.0 and the second on subnet 172.31.56.0.  If you want these two to be on the same subnet (i.e., commnicate directly without routing), the smallest mask you can use would be a /20 (255.255.240.0).

No probs - the only reason I could do this was I'm fresh from putting the final touches on a intro class to IP addressing and subnetting that I'm co-teaching.  And even then I can't tell you how many times I made dumb mistakes in binary calculation.

SJECCP - do this answer your question or do you need additional information?
