network class nomenclature


I'm not really sure what this is called, so I had no idea what to look for. I was wanting to know what it means when an IP class is defined as so

I had always understood it to define the network class depending on if it was /16, /24, or /32. But then I see stuff like this:

which apparently translates to the IP range of -

How does /19 translate to this IP range? Is there anything I can read that describes this clearly? And what the heck is it called anyways?

Thanks for the helo!

Wow, lot more complicated then I thought. It's to late for binary, I'll have to dig though this after I get some sleep.

Thanks for the link!
