That is called CIDR notation where the first part is your IP address like 192.168.1.100 and the second part is your netmask like /24.
Together they would look like:
The /24 CIDR is actually for the netmask like the following:
CIDR | MASK
/24 | 255.255.255.0
/25 | 255.255.255.128
/26 | 255.255.255.192
/27 | 255.255.255.224
/28 | 255.255.255.240
/29 | 255.255.255.248
/30 | 255.255.255.252
/31 | 255.255.255.254
/32 | 255.255.255.255
/24 is the most common in home networks. Linksys and other such routers will assign on IPv4 DHCP records that will look like 192.168.1.100 where the gateway or router IP address is 192.168.1.1. And with a subnet mask of /24 or 255.255.255.0 that means that the IP address octets have to match from 192.168.1.xxx where the last 3 digits can be anything from 1-254 to be in the same subnet.
One tool that I use on a daily basis especially with my job is the Online IP Subnet Calculator. Just to give you something along what your IP might be. I am not sure what your IP is. I am assuming it is a Public Static IP. So, I am going to use a made up IP as 126.96.36.199 with your mask of 255.255.255.252.
Just on the quick image there we can see that the Mask Bits is 30, so the notation would be 188.8.131.52/30 Which would mean that our gateway should be 184.108.40.206 which has to be in the same subnet as our IP address. Clicking on the CIDR just above switches to a slightly different calculator, but I input the same information and received about the same in return.
There we can see that our route would be 220.127.116.11 as our network and our network CIDR Notation would be 18.104.22.168/30 but that is not our IP address. Our broadcast on that network is 22.214.171.124 as that is the highest IP. This is the equivalent of an IP of 192.168.1.15 mask 255.255.255.0 network where our network CIDR Notation would be 192.168.1.0/24 and our broadcast would be 192.168.1.255 and our gateway IP would be more than likely at 192.168.1.1.
Hope this helps!
