Suppose N is the window size and the received acknowledgement is p, it means:
1. N-p frames have been received by receiver
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 , suppose 7 is the sender window size and acknowledgement came as ack5 it means receiver is expecting packet 5 and packets from 0 to 4 have been received properly.

2.N - p = 7 - 5 have to be resent, because there were total N packets to be sent and p have been received so left packets are N - p
