The last 2 digit are the subnet mask.  Here is a quick break down:
		  Dotted Decimal  CIDR
Class a	=     = /8
Class b	=   = /16
Class c	= = /24

Dotted Decimal and CIDR notation are just different ways of saying the same
thing.  The /24 basically means there are 24 bits in the network address,
leaving 8 bits for the host address.  Any network subnet calculator should
be able to show both the dotted decimal or the CIDR notation for a subnet

If you want more info on CIDR notation, goggle for it, you get plenty of
