Normalizing in fixed point multiplication

I got one point off in an exam, for mistakenly adding half an LSB for normalizing and then rounding it up. Adding half an LSB and cutting the decimal points off is a rounding mechanism. I unnecessarily rounded up again after adding half an LSB.

Reminds me to understand every detail of an operation.
