The following steps and Figure 3-4 explain the procedure used to
determine the radiation exposure status of Company A on 31 May.
Refer to Figure 3-1 to find the total number of platoons in
Company A on 31 May. The total is 5.
Add the RES numbers for all the platoons in Company A. The

Read the radiation exposure status which is on the same
line as the total of the RES numbers "3-7." The radiation
exposure status of Company A is RES-1.
