A private IP address is most probably an IP address of a home router or a client

The home router usually serves also as a DNS and a DHCP server for the home network.

In binary form it is 11000000101010000000000101100110 or 0b11000000101010000000000101100110 .

In hexadecimal format it is C0A80166 or 0xC0A80166.
