3. The allowable number of students determined under section 1 must be adjusted by adding the number of additional students to take into account the reduction in the school population.

The number of additional students is determined by

(a) multiplying by 0.99 the total of the numbers obtained for the preceding school year under paragraphs 2 to 4 and 7 to 10 of section 1, to which is added, where applicable, the number obtained under subparagraph 1 of this paragraph for the same school year;

(b) subtracting from the product obtained under subparagraph a, the sum of the numbers obtained under paragraphs 2 to 4 and 7 to 10 of section 1 for the school year for which the maximum yield of the school tax is calculated, as they read taking into account the application of section 4, if applicable;

(2) calculating the number of 5-year-old preschool students and elementary school students who may be taken into account for the purpose of calculating the reduction in the number of students by

(a) multiplying by 0.99 the number of 5-year-old preschool students and elementary school students determined for the preceding school year under paragraph 7 of section 1 and under paragraphs 2, 3, 8 and 9 of section 1, to which is added, where applicable, the number obtained under subparagraph 2 of this paragraph for the same school year;

(b) subtracting from the product obtained under subparagraph a, the total of the numbers of 5-year-old preschool students and elementary school students obtained under paragraphs 2, 3, 7, 8 and 9 of section 1 for the school year for which the maximum yield of the school tax is calculated, as they read taking into account the application of section 4, if applicable;

(3) calculating the number of secondary school students who may be taken into account for the purpose of calculating the reduction in the number of students by

(a) multiplying by 0.99 the number of secondary school students determined for the preceding school year under paragraphs 4, 7 and 10 of section 1, to which is added, where applicable, the number obtained under subparagraph 3 of this paragraph for the same school year;

(b) subtracting from the product obtained under subparagraph a, the total number of secondary school students determined under paragraphs 4, 7 and 10 of section 1 for the school year for which the maximum yield of the school tax is calculated, taking into account the application of section 4, where applicable;

(4) subtracting from the sum of the numbers obtained under paragraphs 2 and 3, the number obtained under paragraph 1 and multiplying by 0.37 the resulting number;

(5) adding the numbers obtained under subparagraphs 1 and 4.

In the operations prescribed by this section, when a number is lower than zero, it is deemed to be zero.
