Isn't this wrong? If the netmask is .224, it should be either
192.168.0.0-31 or 192.168.0.32-63. 192.168.0.16 does not make sense
here.

On subnet 192.168.0.16 with a mask of 255.255.255.224 will give enuff ips
for 29 clients. One for the broadcast addy. Primary subnet would be
192.168.x.x.0 wich can only handle 254 clients. X.16 is just taken from that
SN and subnetted out into a different allocation block. I slapped it in
there hopping the OP would see the that other subnets ways to configure it.
Good catch 

For 30 hosts per SN it would be x.1 - x.30 and x.30 being the broadcast
addy. So your real close. You making me think to early in the day and made
me get my calculator out.
