What is the maximum number of IP addresses that can be assigned to hosts on a local subnet that uses the 255.255.255.224 subnet mask?
14
15
16
30
Explanation:
A /27 (255.255.255.224) is 3 bits on and 5 bits off. This provides 8 subnets, each with 30 hosts. Does it matter if this mask is used with a Class A, B, or C network address? Not at all. The number of host bits would never change.

What is the maximum number of subnet and host per subnet for the 192.168.5.47 255.255.255.224 network?

255.255.255.0 default class C subnet mask.

The default subnet mask of class C address we have to remember 255.255.

255.255.255.224 convert to binary:

11111111.11111111.11111111.11100000 = /27 bits, 5 bits left for hosts,
subnet-mask has 32, therefore 32 - 27 = 5,
2^5 - 2 = 32 - 2 = 30.

Total host= 2^( use off bits) - 2.
