Different approach: I prefer "mod" for loop breakouts/pitstops.
Very clean way to determine action for certain loop iterations!
Useful for fractional values too, in LC versions thus far.

You can easily set the numberformat twice, if necessary, in the loop.
And/or take control over whether your comparison is text or binary.
(The numberformat gets involved when converting binary to text.)
