Suppose a 1500 Byte datagram were to be sent over a link with MTU size of 296. We define IP control overhead as the ratio of control information you add in the form of IP header(s) to the IP payload length. What is the IP overhead of the original datagram i.e. the 1500 Byte datagram? Express answer as a percentage. What is IP control overhead associated with all the fragments? Express overhead in percentage.

Overhead here is headers 120(20*6)?

(1500+120)/1500 ?

you're correct but here it's mentioned

overhead as the ratio of control information you add in the form of IP header(s) to the IP payload length

= 120 /1500

Yeah @Magma thankyou

TCP+IP Header=20+20=40

Overhead=6*40/1500=0.16 =16%
