Class A IP Addressing
188.8.131.52/8 to 184.108.40.206/8 (126 Networks)
Having 24 bits for host addresses means that each Class A network has 16,777,216 mathematically possible host addresses.
the first bit of the first octet must be 0.
The highest value of the first octet is 01111110 or 126 (64 + 32 + 16 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 0)
The last three octets of a Class A address represent possible host addresses within each specific network number.
Individual host addresses can be duplicated within each network address.
The range of possible Class A network addresses is from 220.127.116.11 to 127.0.0.0
Valid host addresses for Class A networks range from x.0.0.0 to x.255.255.255 .
Hosts 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 would be on the same network (126.96.36.199).
