EIA Standard Resistor Values

Standard base resistor values are given in the following tables for the most commonly used tolerances (1%, 5%, 10%), along with typically available resistance ranges. To determine values other than the base, multiply the base value by 10, 100, 1 000 or 10 000.

Example: Calculations indicate the need for a 355 kΩ resistor and a tolerance of 1%. Look in the 1% table and select the 35.7 value (the nearest available standard value). Multiply by 10 000 to convert to 357 kΩ.
