Last octet being .10000000 = 128. Block size: 256-128=128. Increment of 128

Borrowing 9 bits in a class B IP results in third octet all being 1, and first bit in fourth octet being 1. Therefore the final subnet mask is: 11111111.11111111.11111111.10000000 or 255.255.255.128 or /25.

Agreed. 9 bits needed for 512 subnet (2^9=512). 16 bits available - 9 leaves 7 bits for hosts.2^7=128

Class B has a mask of /16,plus the 9 bits required for networks makes /25 or 255.255.255.128
