1.Given that there are 5 nodes in a LAN and a connection between each pair of nodes is

$10. Based solely on the price of connections, how much would a full mesh topology

cost?

2.Given that there are 5 nodes in a LAN and a connection between each pair of nodes is

$10, how much would a ring topology cost?

3.If the 8-port 10BaseT hub is replaced by an 8-port 10BaseT switch, how many

pairs of PCs, in the 6-PCs LAN, can be communicating with each other through

that 8-port 10BaseT switch at a time, under the most ideal condition?

4.How many pairs of PCs, in the 6-PCs LAN, can be communicating with each

other through that 8-port 10BaseT hub at any one time?

5.State a topology that would be cheaper than the ring topology. How much would this

topology cost using the same $10 per connection for each pair of nodes, based on 5

nodes in the LAN?
