It depends on how you have defined your route.If its a /16 route then yes for the first part of your question.the 130.65 is the network part and 0.255 is the host part (although that cannot be a valid host id since it is a broadcast IP address on that subnet but I am assuming you know that)
Basically when you say that it is a /16 route what you are saying that the first 16 bits of the IP address are the network part and the rest is the host part.
Now the subnets would make the route as a /20 route and since you have 16 subnets your mask would be 255.255.240.0 assuming that your subnets go from 130.65.0.x - 130.65.0.15.x

Why does this sound like homework.
Take a look at Howtosubnet.com It explains subnetting fairly well.
