To what subnet does the IP address 10.1.100.50 belong if a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 is used?
|Explanation & Hint:
The purpose of a subnet mask is to separate the network portion of the address from the host portion of the IP address. The network portion of the IP address is identified by all binary 1s in the subnet mask. Using a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 identifies the first two octets of the IP address as the network portion.
