% Pg 159 IP Octet to change? Subnetting
The question asks to sub net 255.255.0.0/16 this is a class A network.
T.L changes the second octet when adding the blocks surely the octet to change for each network would be the third?
This has completely lost me.
I thought when you have a subnet mask 255.255.248.0 you would change the third octet, anything with 255 you leave along and go to the next octet?

First let's make sure we have the correct terminology. The 255.255.0.0 is the subnet mask. You are not subnetting the subnet mask. You subnet a network address.
With that being said, let's look at the example 1A on page 159 that you are referring to.
The Class A default mask is 255.0.0.0. In this example, he is going to use the mask 255.255.0.0. So, he has taken 8 bits away from the host portion to use for network addressing. These are your 8 subnet bits. So he does the calculations based on that.
Hope this helps.
