When you say "/22", you are saying "the last 10 bits of address are
the number of the machine, in the net".
In this form:
^-----subnet  22 bits-----------^ ^--machine--^

So, the "2" in "10.0.2" fit inside the machine number and not in the
The third digit could be 0, 4, 8, 12 and so on, any number not using
the last 2 bits (and less than 253).
