Can I please get the worked solution and the easy steps to follow for the following question
of IP addresses and you are allocated the public IP address pool defined by
194.168.32.0/26.
If the organisation uses a flat network without subnets then how many hosts can be
attached to the network? Explain you answer clearly.
You are required to subdivide your IP address pool into 4 equal subnets by choosing the
Show clearly how your choice of subnet mask will generate the required subnets and list
the IP address range of each subnet.

The subnet mask is 255.255.255.192. You have been allocated 62 addresses. The network address is 194.168.32.0 The broadcast address is 194.168.32.63. Assuming the router takes 1 address, you can attach 61 hosts to this network if it is not subnetted. To subdivide you use the mask 255.255.255.240 adding 2 bits to the network mask. The four subnets are 194.168.32.0, 194.168.32.16, 194.168.32.32, and 194.168.32.48.

194.168.32.0   194.168.32.1-194.168.32.14 194.168.32.15
194.168.32.16  194.168.32.17-194.168.32.30 194.168.32.31
194.168.32.32  194.168.32.33-194.168.32.46 194.168.32.47
194.168.32.48  194.168.32.49-194.168.32.62 194.168.32.63

To convert the /26 to a subnet mask, write 26 1's followed by 32-26 0's (which is six). break in to groups of 8 and covert each 8 bit binary number to decimal.s

The number of 0's at the end give you the host portion of your network, in this case you have 6 zeros, so the host portion is 2**6 or 64. Since the low value is the network address and the high value is the broadcast, you subtract 2 and get the number of network addresses or hosts as 62. Your router counts as one of these hosts leaving 61 other hosts.
