Default layer calculation - confused, need help

Dear Forum-Users,

I seem to lack the equipment(meshcellcount>braincellcount) to calculate the layers - all I got so far is a headache!

My bounding box is 10x10x5
cellsize is 0,457x0,457*0.175
first layer (nearest to the wall of my structure) needs to be 0,007905 or close to that

My Idea:
Structure lvl 4
Layer 3
finalLayerThickness 0,5
expansionRatio 0,5

That should give me a first Layer of 0.00742

Now I look at this and I can't get the Idea out of my head that I am doing it wrong but I can't find my mistake(s).

Please can someone confirm this or help me to do ot right?

Thank you!
