2. How many IP address could be assigned in each subnet of 220.8.7.0, assuming that a mask of 255.255.255.240 is used? If the same (static) mask is used for all subnets, how many subnets are there?

3. What does the acronym CIDR stand for? What is the original purpose of CIDR? Include an example illustrate your answer?

You are given the network address 210.45.1.0 and the subnet mask 255.255.255.224. You need to assign IP addresses to the hosts on your LAN using the network address from your ISP.

Answer the following questions:

Look at the subnet mask. The default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, but you are using 255.255.255.224. How many bits did you "borrow" from the host portion in order to create subnets?

How many subnetworks can you create?

How many hosts can you have on each subnet?

What is the network address of the first subnet?

What is the broadcast address of the first subnet?

What is the first valid IP address for a host on the first subnet?

What is the last valid IP address for a host on the first subnet?

Please put answers with question and please used the submitted paper I sent you.
