Almost, the last one in the first row looks like more yellow than magenta making a weak orange color. Based on my drop theory, it would be 12 drops Y to 10 M.
So then based on your theory the last one would be 2 ml Magenta and how many ml of yellow?
I'm thinking 3.5 cc/ml or so.
Okay, the results are below. Remember, I started out with 2 cc of magenta.
Here is how much yellow (in cc / ml) was added (in total) at each dot:
1 0 (All Magenta, no yellow)
That means that the # 6 dot, the "red one" is a 50/50 mixture of Magenta and Yellow, and the #13 dot is a 20/80 mix of Magenta / yellow, or 4 times as much yellow as Magenta.
I was shocked by the results, but when I ended up with a total liquid volume of 10 cc / ml I knew I had kept accurate measurements (2 cc Magenta, 8 cc Yellow).
What do you think?
By the way, the two dots under the first dot are more samples of the mix from the 7th and 13th position dots. I wanted to see them closer together to compare.

Surprising, I really thought that 50/50 would be orange. The magenta must be very strong, a lot stronger than I thought.
Looks like you're good to go with number 6.
Now I just have to add in more magenta to bring me back from #13 back to #6
