I assume you're rounding to the nearest whole number...
5 isn't easily divisible by 2, so let's change your original equation
by multiplying top and bottom by 2.
[(3 * 256 / 16)* 6 * 2] / 10
Now, to get the rounding, add 5 (half your denominator) to the numerator before
you divide:
([(3 * 256 / 16)* 6 * 2] + 5) / 10
This will get you rounded to the nearest whole number.
In the general case...
If you've got
N/D
and you want a rounded to the whole number result, compute
(2*N+D) / (2*D)
