Finally what we have to do?

Number of subnets? 2^n -2  or 2^n, where n is the number of borrowed bits ?
asked in Computer Networks by Loyal (4k points)   | 67 views
2^n generally;

But it depends on you, how you are dividing the subnet.

There is a question in GATE, where 2^n was not matching with options, but 2^n-2.
suppose if subnet bits =3 and question is to calculate total no of subnets and options include

a) 8

b) 6

in this situation wht we would choose?
