Dry ferts delivered today!

i am getting my dry ferts in today. So i wanted to ask here just to double check and make sure i am doing everything right.

i want to do EI dosing, and i have a 15 gallon tank.

So according tot the sticky i should add :

10-20 Gallons (38-76 litres)
10ml solution or 1/8 tsp KNO3 3x a week
5ml solution or 1/32 tsp KH2PO4 3x a week
2ml solution or 1/32 tsp K2SO4 3x a week
2ml or 1/32 tsp traces 3x a week

Now do i add this directly into the tank? Also are these numbers correct? or do i have to mix this up in a solution before hand?

Any other helpful tips before i start pouring this stuff into my tank would be great!

I have a little cup/bowl and get water out of the tank, mix it then pour it back in, from what I have read you can easily add straight into the tank

I dose directly. I just sprinkle it in front of the spraybar or powerhead.
