I want to start doing my test strips using the f-stop method. So far I'm able to work out 1/2 stop increments, not exactly difficult even for my poor maths ability. However this has been a little coarse and I think it would work even better if I used 1/4 or finer steps.

Is there a formula, or rule of thumb for calculating these small increments, or some other resource, such as a chart or table available? I know there is a timer which supports this feature but that is outside of my budget constraints, at least at the moment.
