Where did this come from?  It seems like you are doing too many reductions.

One other observation:

Doesn't the code require a minimum of 3 diameters edge distance at all times? 
 If so, the typical 4x wall framed flush with the outer concrete cannot use 
anything larger than a 1/2" anchor.  The center of the 4x is at 1.75 in from 
the edge, and .625x(3)= 1.875 (no good!).  I see this provision violated 
every day.
