do 256-248=8 which gives you the offset

So first subnet 214.143.254.8
second 214.143.254.16
third 214.143.254.24
and so on up to 248

each subnet 8-2=6 usable hosts i.e first subnet first usable host is 214.143.254.9 last one 214.143.254.14 as said above

32 different subnets

bit more info than required but there you go.
