routing table interpretation

Hello, referring to the attached routing table.

The circled route for 172.16.50.0 has two 'via' routes (172.16.51.1 and 172.16.52.2)

Do I interpret this to mean that both of these 'via' routes have the same 'cost metric' to the destination and either one could be used by the router to reach 172.60.50.0 network ?

If this is the case, how would the router choose which one of them to use. i.e. is it simply based on their numerical order i.e. 172.16.51.1 being a lower value than 172.16.52.2 ?

Thank you for confirmation.

Hi,

That is correct.  You have equal cost load balancing to that destination (172.16.50.0).
