Given an IP address 172.16.28.252 with a subnet mask of 255.255.240.0, what is the correct network address?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
To determine the network address, you need to perform a bitwise AND operation between the IP address and the subnet mask.
Let's convert the IP address and subnet mask to binary:
IP address: 10101100.00010000.00011100.11111100 Subnet mask: 11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000
Performing a bitwise AND operation between the IP address and the subnet mask gives you the network address:
Network address: 10101100.00010000.00010000.00000000
Converting this binary network address back to decimal notation, we get:
Therefore, the correct answer is A. 172.16.16.0.
