Default Any math wizards here? (gelcoat mix)

Help me out as I'm having a major brain fart over this.. Just call me stupid!

If the formula calls for 17 CC's of hardner to 32 oz's of gelcoat resin how do I figure out how much hardner I'd need if I only want to mix up 1 ounce of resin?

Damn the 70's!

I'm no math whiz... but I come up with about 0.53 cc for 1 ounce.

17/32=0.531

I could be missing this completely though....

32oz is gonna take about 5/8ths of an ounce for a 2% concentration, get a CC cup its a bit easier at 18 cc's
