Something is wrong with the steps im using to complete my equations for estimating weights. Im happily zipping through my course and BAM! simple math strikes again. I plug in the numbers to the formulas and make the girdle adjustments according to the charts but its not adding up.
round brilliant- AGD x AGD x Depth x .0061 x WC% Did I forget to add something, or what? Had similar problems with Hearts. L x W x D x .0059 x WC%. I dont get it. According to the formula its simple math. What did I miss? I'm assuming its something in the WC% but what, its a chart.

Somewhere along the line I missed the part that said correction starts at slightly thick. Not medium thick. Why would there even be a correction % for medium thick if you don't use it. Oh well mystery solved.
