    In CIDR, IP address and bit-length prefix are separated by slash. We first generate subnet mask from bit-length prefix as shown below.

    23 = 8 + 8 + 7 + 0

    That gives us the subnet mask in quad-dotted decimal format as 255.255.254.0 .

    IP address 140.28.72.190 in binary notation is ...
