you are already specifying it is CLASS B ===> 16 bits for NETWORK part

Now, you are using 12 bits for SUBNET ====> 12 bits for SUBNET part

Total IP address have 32 bits

therefore No.of Host bits  = 32 - ( 16 + 12) = 32-28 = 4

with that 4 you can represent 16 addresses

but first address ( put all zero's in host bits ) and last address ( put all one's in host bits ) used for NETWORK IP ADDRESS and BROADCAST IP ADDRESS respectively.

there only 14 hosts possible per subnet
