Wanted to see if I got this correct.

If I have a 48 port switch and it needs to be enough for 30% growth, if it exceeds then we add another switch as a stack.  

48 x .3 = 14.4

48 - 14.4 = 33.6 lets round to 34 (ports)

When port utilization is 34/48 = 70.8% (excluding uplinks) then a stack should be added.  

Does this sound right?
