Wrong site, subnet questions are probably more suited for ServerFault. – ho1 Jul 6 '10 at 7:32
yet another site! The subnet category is here too. – simpatico Jul 6 '10 at 7:49
@simpatico: Just because someone's created a tag here doesn't mean that that persons question was correctly located either... And either way, if it's about writing code for calculating the subnet mask, it would probably be ok, just that your question/answer isn't very development oriented. – ho1 Jul 6 '10 at 9:14
Class A/B/C networks haven't been used in 10 years. If this is coming from a textbook, then get your educational facility to get newer curriculum (not only that but the question makes no sense) – Mark Henderson Jul 7 '10 at 5:50

2^4 = 16 subnets. 4 bits are to be reserved for the host, while the other 4 could be used for subnets.
