248 is the smallest subnet you can have. You cannot subnet beyond that point.

Not to answer the homework question, but to refute djacosta's statement:
Actually, you can divide even this network into two subnets using mask = subnet 0 subnet ID = host 1 = host 2 = broadcast = subnet 1 subnet ID = host 1 = host 2 = broadcast

You will loose the use of two host ID's and reduce the total number of hosts from 6 to 4
Officially--subnet zero is not usable anyway, so by strict rules of the game, you can't use the subnet to start with, but you could use the two hosts of subnet 1--.4 and .5 only.
