Not according to my SSClassic/LX manual, which reads:

"The maximum memory configuration is 96 megabytes using six 16-megabyte
DSIMMs. You can combine different types of DSIMMs in the same system; 
you must add DSIMMs in identical pairs. That is, you can add a pair of 
DSIMMs or a pair of 16-megabyte DSIMMs, but you cant add a single DSIMM or
add one of each type."
