When referencing the 2018 IBC table 1004.5 for example, are you supposed to just use both the "net" and "gross" ratios interchangeably if there is no grossing factor provided on a given problem/ scenario?
That messed me up on a practice exam. If they give you the area for a room with occupancy "X" that's 40 net and then occupancy "Y" that's 150 gross, are we just supposed to assume the areas they give you are already accounting for the gross/ net sq. ft.?
Maybe I am thinking too deep into this but I don't want to be tripped up on an exam.
