What why math? well let me tell you why math and exponents, plenty of people have issues with exponents and not to mention when you bring in imaginary numbers and logarithms. But back to the subject of networking this subject is simple enough it goes as follows.
2^0 = 1
2^1 = 2
2^2 = 4
2^3 = 8
2^4 = 16
2^5 = 32
2^6 = 64
2^7 = 168
Do you see the pattern, just in case you don’t know what exponents are they break down as follow:
As you can see this first 8 octets are very important, in IP V4 for networking an invaluable information.
