Multiple exposurers

Hi all, years ago I learned to do multiple exposures with my faithful K1000 SLR and would like to try it again but I have forgotten some things. As I remember we were taught to set for proper exposure then back off 1 click for each exposure we intended to put on 1 frame, does that sound right? My head is so full of bills and snow blower problems I cant remember the fun stuff....

If I remember correctly, it was 1 fstop for each exposure. It has been quite awhile since I shot film.

One stop sound right for double exposure. Two stops however is one quarter as much light, so is suitable for four layers. Three stops is for eight.
Intermediate numbers are:
Three exposures - 1.58

Indeed, one stop for a double exposure. 2 stops for 4 exposures...
