# #StackBounty: #networking #tcp #protocols Computer networking: During what transmission round is the 70th segment sent?

### Bounty: 50

While practicing some exercises I came across the following exercises that I just can’t wrap my head around. Looking at the solution, I don’t get how they reach to the conclusion that packet 32 to 63 are sent in the 6th transmission round. How was 63 computed?

During what transmission round is the 70th segment sent?

Solution:

``````During the 1st transmission round, packet 1 is sent;
packet 2-3 are sent in the 2nd transmission round;
packets 4-7 are sent in the 3rd transmission round;
packets 8-15 are sent in the 4th transmission round;
packets 16 to 31 are sent in the 5th transmission round;
packets 32 to 63 are sent in the 6th transmission round;
packets 64 to 96 are sent in the 7th transmission round.
Thus packet 70 is sent in the 7th transmission round.
``````
