For Sans: n advancewidth / 32 * 15(±2)

For Serifs: n advancewidth / 32 * 13(±2)

For example:

If you have a Sans and the /n advancewidth is 400 units, then

400/32*(15-2)= 162 (Smaller deviation)

400/32*15 = 187 (Median)

400/32*(15+2) = 212 (Biggest deviation)

if you have a Serif and the /n advancewidth is 400 units, then

400/32*(13-2)= 137 (Smaller deviation)

400/32*13 = 162 (Median)

400/32*(13+2) = 187 (Biggest deviation)
