i am a student of Networking and will like to have your help to understand subnetting clearly. first let me know you that i know the classes (A B C D) even very well but my issue is i can do well the subnetting and have tried to understant from so many video but they are just confusing me more and more so please can any one of you explain to me thks advance. secondly let me know what i don't understand let said you have a network ID which 192.168.30.0 and you need 8 subnet so how are you going to do.

Isn't hard to calculate:
192.168.30.0 with mask 255.255.255.0 has 256 IPs with
192.168.30.0 net ID and 192.168.30.255 brodcast adress.
This is equivalent with notation 192.168.30.0/24. 24 represent the number of bits used in mask.
255.255.255.0 - 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 that means 24 bits.
Lets split the network.
If i want to …

The number of bits is given by how many bits of mask are 1.
Your initial network have mask.
255.255.255.0 - 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 - that means 24 bits.
255.255.255.128 - 11111111.11111111.11111111.10000000 - that means 25 bits
Your initial network is splited in 2 subnets (2^1)
255.255.255.192 - 11111111.11111111.11111111.11000000 - that means …
