    In a practice problem the question is how to apply IP
    addresses to 3 subnets. In part of the answer it says "The
    address 192.168.9.128/25 could be used for Subnet A, and
    the address 192.168.9.0/26 could be used for Subnet B.
    However using those addresses would require that an
    address of 192.168.9.64/27 or 192.168.96/27 be used for
    Subnet C."

    Subnet A has to accomodate 100 hosts, Subnet B 50 hosts
    and Subnet C 25 hosts.

    I need some help to understand, in the above example, how
    the addresses for A and B dictate the addresses for C.

    In a practice problem the question is how to apply IP
    They don't necessarily. You have to extrapolate a bit. (And
    you have to notice that the question -- as posed -- has the bits
    working the 4th octet while the differences are shown in the
    3rd octet. It's full of typos.

    25 bits leaves 7 bits, 2^7 = 128 or about 126 hosts max.
    26 bits leaves 6 bits, 2^6 = 64 or about 62 hosts max
    27 bits leaves 5 bits, 2^5 = 32 or about 30 hosts max

    Each subnet MUST begin on a "multiple" of that "power of two"
    it uses, i.e., 128, 64, 32.
