Default Scope settings

So let me see if someone can get me to understand scope distance settings, for example, if it's a 1/4 MIA per click at 100 yards and you were 1 inch right of your target then you would do 4 clicks to the left to line up your cross hairs correct? So say your shooting at 200 yards and you have the same situation, off by 1 inch, right off the target. Since the target is twice as far away do you double the number of clicks (8) or use only half as many (2) for your setting?

Sorry, that happy face was meant to be a number 8.

1/4 moa at 100
100=4 clicks
200=8 clicks
300=12 clicks and so forth. Add 4 clicks per 100 yards. Make sense?

Yep, that's what I thought thank you. I just wanted to be sure. I was shooting at 700 yards and was at 28 clicks. I wasn't sure if that was correct but I guess it was. Thanks.
