What is the beginning and ending IP addresses for the following subnets?

Recently I was asked to setup a network appliance that finds and monitors network connected print devices in big networks.  I asked the network administrator to give me a list of all the subnets that were active in his WAN.  He gave me back the following list:

147.206.0.0/0.0.7.255
10.212.0.0/0.0.255.255
10.216.0.0/0.0.255.255
10.214.0.0/0.0.255.255
147.206.8.0/0.0.3.255
147.206.12.0/0.0.1.255
147.206.14.0/0.0.0.255
147.206.16.0/0.0.15.255
147.206.32.0/0.0.31.255
147.206.64.0/0.0.63.255
147.206.128.0/0.0.127.255
10.221.0.0/0.0.255.255
10.225.30.0/0.0.0.255
10.218.0.0/0.0.255.255

I guese I don't know how to interpret this information, because looking at this, I cannot guese what the first and last IP addresses would be based on this notation type.

Can some one interpret this so that I would know what the IP address range would be here?

Thanks,

To be honest neither can I !
The idea behind subnet masks is this every binary digit from the right masks the ip address. This gives you a network address where you can send all the data for that network.
You network data does not conform to this idea.

Looks like the network administrator made a mistake and gave me the subnet masks in reverse.  I like the subnet calculator though - thank you both for your assistance.

he gave u wildcard mask, not subnet mask.
