@balaji.bandiThank you for the video.

VLSM is very confusing.

What you need to do firstly is organize your subnets by size largest first

1,000,000

500,000

250,000  and etc

Then you need to work out how what power of 2 is just greater than 1,000,000

In the example above you can see it is 2^20 .

The 20 is significant because this is the number of Hosts bit you need for this subnet.

Your given base network is 100.80 /12 which looks like in binary

11111111.0101

Subnet 0

2^20 -2 gives 1,048,574 hosts which is enough for 1,000,000 hosts

valid host addresses 11111111.01010000.00000000.00000001  to 11111111.01011111.11111111.11111110

11111111.0110

how many hosts?

need to find 2 power of just bigger than 500,000 which in this case is 2^19 =524,288 -2 = 524,286 which is enough for 500,000 hosts

Hope this helps you get on with it.
