What calculations does the Number Ranges utility use to determine what the next number should be?

The logic used to calculate the inflated numbers is as follows:

  1. Subtract the Current Number (NRIV-NRLEVEL) value from the To Number (NRIV-TONUMBER) value to determine the remaining amount of numbers within the allowed range
  2. Multiply the calculated value from the previous step by the percentage entered by the user on the input screen; this value is rounded up to the next integer as needed
  3. Add the calculated value from the previous step to the Current Number (NRIV-NRLEVEL) value thereby resulting in the inflated number

Here is a hypothetical example: 

  • The 'Current Number' (what has been consumed) for a range is 50,000
  • The 'To Number' (end range) is defined as 1,000,000
  • This means the difference - the remaining/unused number - is calculated as 950,000
  • The user executes the utility using a 10% buffer; 10% of 950,000 is 95,000
  • 95,000 is added on to the current number of 50,000 so that the new (buffered) number is 145,000
