P 172.18.3.0/24, 1 successors, __ is 2172416
via 172.18.4.3 (2172416/28160), Serial0/0/1
P 172.18.5.0/24, 1 successors, __ is 2495120
via 172.18.6.3 (2495120/227692), Serial0/1/0
P 192.168.24.0/24, 1 successors, __ is 2684416
via 192.168.13.5 (2684416/2072316), Serial0/0/0
via 172.18.4.3 (2854912/2342912), Serial0/0/1
P 10.34.1.0/24, 1 successors, __ is 3072
via 10.13.1.3 (3072/2937), GigabitEthernet0/1
via 10.14.1.4 (5376/2937), GigabitEthernet0/2

What is the metric for the successor route for 172.18.5.0/24?

  • 2495120
  • 227692
  • 2854912
  • 3072
Explanation & Hints:

The metric for the successor route for the network 172.18.5.0/24 is 2495120. In EIGRP, the metric listed first in the parentheses next to the route is the feasible distance (FD) to the destination network, which represents the total cost to reach that network. The second number in the parentheses is the reported distance (RD) from the next-hop router. Therefore, for 172.18.5.0/24, the metric (feasible distance) for the successor route via 172.18.6.3 is 2495120.
