The given ip address is converted network to host bit

The range come like
Class A network

Subnet mast :
Mask Bit        : 24
Max Subnet   : 65534
Max Host per subnet : 254
Subnet Host Host address range : -
Subnet ID :
Subnet Broadcast :
if you convert into binary it come : 00001010.00000001.00000001.00000101

In general, if you have X.Y.Z.W and subnet mask, or, or the 255 octet indicates the fixed range of the network ID, and 0s indicates that IPs you can use..

Example x.y.z.w subnet mask, the x.y.z are fixed, and w are the usable IPs that you may use for your network. as you notice 0-255 = 256 IPs - 2 ( 1 IP for Network ID, and 1 IP for Broadcasting) = 254 usable IPs...

It clearly resembles that a higher priority is given to more number of networks than the number of hosts, as the given scheme will provide me with 2^24 networks and 2^8 hosts.(The one single thing to which all boils down to is = requirements)
