Main Question or Discussion Point

I read that the distribution and proportion of dark matter to regular matter is different for regular-size galaxies and dwarf galaxies. Could you guys elaborate on that?

the theory is that dark matter could cover 99 percent of our universe, but today i don't think we know much about it relative to regular matter.

It could be a lot less depending on how innaccurate our theories are.

We don't really know for sure how gravity works on larger scales.
