A .10 would mean Ca of 450 ppm, a .98 would be 10 ppm

There are two styringes in the kit. One measures up to 5ml and is marked in 1ml gradiations. The thinner one measure up to 1ml and is marked in tenths (.01 .02 .02 ... 1.0). There is also an extension tip that needs to be added to the smaller syringe for the test.

The larger syringe is used for gathering the water sample. The smaller one is used for gathering the reagent and dropping the reagent into the test vial.

Does that help? Do you have the full test kit?

My mistake there. The small syringe IS marked in tenths, meaning 0.1, 0.2...1.0 with hundreth markings between each tenth.
A reading of 0 = 500ppm and a reading of 1.0 = 0. Every tenth = 50ppm
Starting at 0 = 500 ppm
.02 = 490 ppm
.04 = 480 ppm
.06 = 470 ppm
.08 = 460 ppm
.01 = 450 ppm

Hope that helps.
