Determining EI dosing with calculator

I am new EI dosing and I think confused about how the calculator works. I am using and really just not sure if these numbers sound right at all.
So my tank is 110gal I am using 500mL solution of 40mL per dose and for my macro I am using 51g of KNO3 which gives me 6ppmNO3 3.78K 1.36N + 25g K2SO4 resulting in 2.16K- Ok so first of all are these dosings about right? Also do you add the 3.78K to the 2.16K?
And my micros are 75gMgSO4 resulting in1.42ppmMg and 16g CSM+B. Does the Mg seem like a lot? I was going to put Mg with macro but last minute decided not to-right move? I am aware there is no Phosphate its in the mail.From my research I got these levels, do they also seem right? Nit 10-20ppm Pot 10-20ppm Phos 1-2ppm and Mg 2-5ppm
