(2) When the total number of parts authorized is between 0.50 and 1.0, the quantity authorized will
(3) For all values above one, fractional values below 0.5 will revert to lower whole number and
fractional value 0.5 and above will advance to the next higher whole number.
(4) When the allowance factor listed in the third echelon column is in parentheses ( ), a quantity
of one is authorized for initial stockage even though the computed quantity is less than 0.5.
