If the first and the last addresses are known, the block is fully defined. We can first find the number of addresses in the block. We can then use the relation

N = 232 − n → n = 32 − log2N

to find the prefix length. For example, if the first address is and the last address is, then the number of addresses in the block is 64. We can find the prefix length as

n = 32 − log2N = 32 − log264 = 26

The block is then
