Proportional counting

Hi Guys,

I am having troubles calculating the vessel weight proportionally.

I have a vessel loaded 548 160 bbls which goes to 3 customers.
180k bbls to one, 250k bbls second and balance to the third.

I need to proportionally to divide the mt's between the customers.
Ie 548 160 bbls equals 59 408.32 mt. I need to calculate how much mt is 180k bbls.

Please help!

I know "barrels" but I'm not clear on "mt"s!

In any case, if "548 160 bbls equals 59 408.32 mt." then you have $\displaystyle \frac{59 408.32}{548 160}= 0.108$ mt per barrel (approximately).

So 180 000 barrels is 180 000 * 0.108= 19507.9860 mts, 250 000 barrels is 250 000*0.108= 27094.4250 mts, and the remaining 118160 barrels is 118160*0.108= 12805.9090 mts.
