Hey guys i was just learning subnetting through the sites fantastic explainations, when i spotted a small error on the 'plan for growth guidelines' section of the subnetting area. i could be wrong if i've misread the context and not got what it meant, but please check this out and get back to me as it seems like an *up too late kinda mistake* to me hehe;

" How many subnets are needed today?

Calculate the maximum number of subnets required by rounding up
the maximum number to the nearest power of two.
For example, if an organization needs five subnets, 2 to the power of 2 or 4 will not provide enough subnet addressing space, so you must round up to 2 to the power of 3 = 8 subnets."

Ofcourse 2 to the power of 4 would provide enough subnets, its more than the supposedly correct "2 to the power of 3" :P or did i miss something?

Thanks for checking this out for me :)
