The answer is yes.
This all depends on the type of IP address.That is the class it belongs to.All that is needed to be done is to subnet the given IP adress. Source:

Depending on the address given (Class A, Class B, or Class C) you can determine how many hosts are available. This is also subject to whether the address is classless or classful. If it is classful the a Class C address can have 254 valid hosts, a Class B can have 64,534 and a Class A can allow over 16 million hosts!
If the address is classless then more focus is on the subnet mask. To illustrate a quick example, if you had the subnet address, you know that it is a Class C address, but the last octet has been subnetted. Converting 240 into binary gives 11110000. This means that 4 bits were used for subnetting (1111) and four bits are left for network addresses (0000). If you did all the possible ranges in binary, starting with 0000 and working all the way til 1111 you see that you get 16 binary instances. Knowing that you cannot use the first and last address you are left with 14, and since the .240 address splits the octet down the middle, you get 14 subnets and 14 valid hosts. Source:

Yes, but only IP address is not sufficient. Along with IP address , information about whether the addressing scheme is classful or classless and information about subnet mask is also needed. Source:

it is possible to tell maximum how many computers can be connected by looking at the IP address but it is not possible to say how many computers are currently connected.
for knowing the no. of address we have to look at the class to which the address belongs. Source:
