The given ip address is converted network to host bit

The range come like

Mask Bit        : 24
Max Subnet   : 65534
Max Host per subnet : 254
Subnet Host Host address range : 10.1.1.1 - 10.1.1.254
Subnet ID : 10.1.1.0
Subnet Broadcast : 10.1.1.255

That means, the given IP address belongs to class a address and it is a private ip address, range of private class a addresses is (10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255)

In general, if you have X.Y.Z.W and subnet mask 255.0.0.0, or 255.255.0.0, or 255.255.255.0. 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 255.255.255.0, 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...

If a computer has such an address, it means that it has got a class A ip address range but it has been subnetted. it can have 253 hosts in this subnet.
