Hi! I am learning about subnet mask. How should I get 12th subnet from this 190.0.0.0/20 IP address? To do it I guess first of all I have to know block address of 20. Ok block address of 20 is 16. So 256 - 16 = 240. So subnet mask address will be 255.255.240.0. So what will be IP range like

``````190.0.?.0
? 1
? 2
? 3
? 4
. .
. .
. .
?/? X 255/256
``````

I have seen an example which is

172.16.0.0/19

Block size of 19 is 32.

Subnet mask : 256-32 = 224 so subnet mask is 255.255.224.0

``````**32x6 = 192**

IP range : 172.16.**192**.0
.   1
.   2
.   3
.   4
.   .
.   .
.   .
223/32 X 255/256
``````

I did not understand it & how did we get 192? 32 was block size but what is 6? Because 32 X 6 = 192. Please help me to understand it clearly & easily.
