Hi All,

I am current taking the CCENT Course and I am viewing the video "Understand and apply subnetting Part 1 and 2"

and I am having a very difficult time following a particular subject in the video.

One of the examples is how do you make 8 networks with the provided IP below:

192.168.10.0

I understand how you start it, I understand converting it to binary. The part where I get lost is when they say we need 12 bits to make 8 networks. (How are they coming up with 12 bits)

Then in the video he goes with 3 bits? that does not make any sense to me?

00001100 (The one's being the 8 and 4 place holder value) wouldn't that be 4 bits(The last four digits being used

I don't understand that part, can someone assist
