    Each octet has 8 bits which are either 1 or 0. A subnet mask of looks like this:


    The decimal value of the last octet = 128.

    The 1's represent the (sub)network address, while the 0's represent the host portion (with the last one being the broadcast address).

    This could also be represented using the CIDR notation of /25 - since the (sub) network address contains 25 bits.
