I have a scenario where I have 4 different departments networked together in a business. These departments each have an IP address of,,, and with 4, 6, 8, and 7 workstations respectively. I also need to have a networked printer for each department. What could the IP addresses of these printers be? The workstations are:,,, for the first department, and so on for the remaining 3 departments. With this scenario, could the printers be set up with the IP addresses of: Department 1-, Department 2 -, Department 3 -, and Department 4 - I hope this makes sense and someone can help me out with some feedback -- it would be greatly appreciated!

Homework, huh?

Yes, those printer addresses would be fine. In your /24 network, you have the address range 192.168.x.y, where x defines the network and y the hosts, which can be from 1 to 254 (0 cannot be used for a host and 255 is the broadcast address). And of course each address can only be used once on the network, so x.2 is fine for each printer.
