splitting a /28 into two /29's what are the gateways for the /29s?

I have a question about subnetting/supernetting at /28 to two /29s

if I start with a /28 block with the following info:
IP Block x.x.x.224/28
Gateway x.x.x.225
First Usable x.x.x.226
Last Usable x.x.x.238

The gateway for the first /29 stays the same (I believe).  What then is the GW for the second /29?  Wouldnt it be outside of the range?  

thank you

Since the gateway has always to be on the same subnet as the device, you need another gateway (address) in that subnet. It can be the same physical device (e.g. a router) having two IP addresses, one of each subnet; or a L3 switch acting as a router between VLANs.
So, the gateway will most likely by chosen to be x.x.x.233 with the second /29 subnet.

when divide a /28 subnet into 2 subnets of /29, the addresses are:

First network: X.X.X.224/29
- GW: X.X.X.225 (usually)
- First to Last usable address: X.X.X.226 -> X.X.X.231/29

Second network: X.X.X.232/29
- GW: X.X.X.233 (usually)
- First to Last usable address: X.X.X.234 -> X.X.X.238/29

The GW address was defined on your configurations, but usually we set it as the first address of the network
