I think the answer for this question is wrong. It should be 255.255.248.0. The formula for calculating the subnets should be 2^n-2.


48. You are designing an IP addressing scheme for a company using CIDR compliant routing protcol and routers configured with the ip subet-zero command. You have been assigned a class B network address 172.16.4.0 and you have to divide it into 15 subnets with at minimum of 3000 hosts each. What subnet should you use? e. 255.255.240.0

    That is the formula for 'traditional subnetting' and does not apply when CIDR/ip subnet-zero command is supported/used on all devices. In that case you do not need to subtract the 2.

    Please do a search on this topic before starting another discussion on this...
