will multiply the number of prescribed loads authorized by the quantity of repair parts reflected in the appropriate density
column to obtain the total quantity of repair parts authorized.
(3)Organizational units providing maintenance for more than 100 of these equipments shall determine the total
quantity of parts required by converting the equipment quantity to a decimal factor by placing a decimal point before the
next-to-last digit of the number to indicate hundredths, and multiplying the decimal factor by the parts quantity authorized
in the 51-100 allowance column. Example: authorized allowance for 51-100 equipments is 12; for 140 equipments,
multiply 12 by 1.40 or 16.80 rounded off to 17 parts required.
