Dear Math community I'm struggling with a small math issue and I hope some of you can help. Assume we have a list of numbers 20000 45000 1500 2444 5000 sum: 60944 Now I want to take the first figure (20000) and split it across the 4 remaining sums according to their weight (if that makes sense). Is there a formula for a calculation like this? Thanks in advance

My guess  use magnitudes for weights.

Total = 45000+1500+2444+5000. First weight = 45000/total, etc.
