b. Fractional values obtained from above computation will be rounded

to whole numbers as follows:

(1) When the total number of parts authorized is less than one, the

quantity authorized will be one.

(2) For all values above one, fractional values below 0.5 will revert

to the next lower number, fractional values of 0.5 or larger will

advance to the next higher whole number.

c. The number of parts authorized, determined after application of

a and b above, represent one prescribed load for a 15-day period. The

items and computed quantities thereof must be on hand or on order at
