Right, so, I've worked over a decade in information technology and know how to translate an IP address down to binary or vice versa for defining
subnets and other such data routing fun.
Without using google, or your computer, or anything other than paper and pen, or pencil, please, tell me what the IP address 192.168.75.101 translates
into in JUST ones and zeros.
Please tell me also if 1001 is a letter or a number.
Further, if I needed to allocate a subnet for a 150 host network, what would the subnet mask for that network be using both base 2 and base 10?
That's the really super simple stuff.
When I say me math needs be better, I talking about math as a language; on the level required for serious inquiry where math turns into something that
looks like cuneform and egyptian heiroglyphs had a baby together and then proceeded to abuse it horribly until if looked kinda sorta like Greek, but,
not really because of so many reasons I just don't have adequate mathematical language to describe.
Anyway, yup, that's what I mean. Big difference between speaking math and doing algebra and other elementary arithmetic.
