Mask Design Drill 2: Answers

By certskills April 24, 2012 07:00

Today’s post just lists the answers to the Mask Design drill #2. The drill lists some basic requirements for a number of hosts per subnet, and a number of subnets, and a network class. Your job: Pick the one mask that meets all the requirements. Today’s post lists the answers. My ICND1 book, Chapter 16 spells out the details. Post questions here if you have them!

A Quick Note on What’s in the Answers

The Drill asks for the one and only one prefix-style mask that meets all requirements, or “none” if no mask meets all requirements.

This post lists the answers, with other related facts, but it does not spell out exactly how to find each answer. The answer table lists the literal answer to each problem. It also lists a few other key facts related to each problem. Additionally, this post shows a diagram of the logic behind each problem. I’m leaving the explanations at that; ask questions if the concept doesn’t leap at you after seeing what’s here.
