Hagen Kh test kit question

I lost the booklet for my Kh kit. I forgot how to figure my Kh, I remember you have to count the drops, but I forgot what to mulitply them by.

Assuming the (standard) use of 5ml aquarium water....

KH:
# of drops x 10 = mg/l (ppm) CaCO3
GH:
# of drops x 20 = mg/l (ppm) CaCO3

To express each in terms of degrees of German Hardness (dGH), multiply the result by 0.056.
