Sorry I forgot about it, but currently I don't understand.

(x/6) = x * (1/6) = (x * (n/6)) / n, well I choose I nice power of 2 n the
down division can be replaced by a m shift and the upper (n/6) can be
computer and round it. for example if I say n = 16.

(x/6) = (x * (16/6)) >> 4 ~ (x * 3) >> 4.

I need to do a right shift by 1 how do you find the constant for right
shift by 1
