i saw in a book , it was 2000::/3 prefix, it will be 2 or 3 hex value, how it is possible , when u r taking prefix as 3 , if i convert this in binary 1110 0000 0000 0000 ::/3, is it mean that first 3 bits are in network , just explain me how 2000::/3 is 2 or 3 hex..

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

2000::/3 means …….each of the digits of 2000 are in hex……that means 2 will be represented in 4 bits…….now ” :: ” this quotation is used to shorten the length of the address ( only representation cause, not originally)….reason for ” :: ” here is there are all zeroes after 2000 in all quartret on the address, we can place ” :: ” quote in place of zeroes……and for network IPv6 uses first 64 bit (out of 128 bit)……
