 Research and implementation as an investment alternative: the effect of the incremental tax credit. (Federal Taxation)
Because the base figure was a moving average of annual RandE expenditures, growth in spending in the current year was included in the base period for the purpose of computing the subsequent year's incremental spending.
The base amount is the product of the fixed base percentage and the average gross receipts for the four years immediately preceding the computation year.
This limit favors the taxpayer, because a computed fixed base percentage in excess of 16% would result in a larger base in the computation year which, in turn, would lower the incremental spending that would otherwise be eligible for the credit.

 The Ballpark - Reached on error   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A major difference between calculating a batting average or slugging percentage as opposed to an on-base percentage is that hitting a sacrifice fly does not adversely effect a batters batting average or his slugging percentage, but it hurts a batters on-base percentage.
In fact, under Rule 10.09(d), a scorekeeper is instructed to withhold credit for a sacrifice bunt if he or she believes that the batter was bunting primarily for a base hit and not for the purpose of advancing a runner or runners.
If a batter manages to do so, whether its on a base hit, or a walk, or by being hit by a pitch, he is considered as having been successful.

 Baseball 101: On-base average plus slugging percentage - 06/12/05
OPS reveals two essential facets of offense: how often a player gets on base, and how much of his ability to get on base is the result of hitting the ball hard and for extra bases, which is the best method for driving in runs.
A fundamental rule of offense is that, no matter his batting average, a player's on-base percentage (number of hits, walks and times hit by a pitch divided by overall number of at-bats, not just official at-bats) should be equivalent to a very good batting average:.340, at least.
He thwarted the common-sense evaluation that getting on base via walk is as important to a team's offense as getting on base via a single.
