Long story short I'm doing a math assignment thats due tomorrow. I need to work out a percentage.

I've got my numbers in a table and I need to be able to make a percentage to represent how much of something (in this case a block of text it is)

For example...

Need a percentage of the numbers in the bottom...

confused yet?

Why dont do it in excel, and copy it into word?
Or past a picture of it in word.

But it is possible, but i dont remember it now.

This is pretty basic. I'll do my best to explain it:

A percentage of something is (CurrentNumberOfElements/TotalNumberOfElements) * 100

So if you had 2 pieces of pie out of a total of 5 possible pieces total, it would be (2/5)*100=40%

Assuming that the numbers below the letters are the weight of the letter (how many elements they represent), then take the following example:

Assume you have the string "BHJTP"
B=7
H=10
J=2
T=18
P=7

7+10+2+18+7 = 44

So, now lets add up all of the letters weights (bottom row):

7+9+7+5+2+10+2+3+9+10+12+7+0+6+17+18+1+6+0+5+0 = 136

So "BHJTP" = (44/136)*100 = 32.3529%
