Zone Multiplier and Airflow Rates

Similar to this question, I'm adding a number of objects to zones that have a multiplier attached to them. These objects are either Fan:ZoneExhaust and ZoneVentilation:DesignFlowRate as well as ZoneMixing (transfer air).

I basically want to model exhaust of 200 CFM in a trash room, with make up coming from the adjacent corridor. I have a floor that gets multiplied by two: I added a Zone Multiplier of 2 for all zones on this floor.

Should I enter 200 CFM or 400 CFM for the aforementioned objects?

Similar to this question, I'm adding a number of objects to zones that have a multiplier attached to them. These objects are either Fan:ZoneExhaust and ZoneVentilation:DesignFlowRate as well as ZoneMixing (transfer air).

I basically want to model exhaust of 200 CFM $200 \ CFM$ in a trash room, with make up coming from the adjacent corridor. I have a floor that gets multiplied by two: I added a Zone Multiplier of 2 for all zones on this floor.

Should I enter $200 \ CFM$ or $ 2 \times 200 CFM or = 400 CFM \ CFM$ for the aforementioned objects?
