Hello! Excuse me for my very basic understanding of math. I'll try and present my idea and problem clearly. I'd like to devise a payout structure for a tournament. 20% of the entrants will be paid. The payout will be an exponentially sloping function. The payout is in percentages that equal 100%; structured (approximately) in this way: If there were 35 entrants, 7 places would be paid. 1st would get 37% 2nd would get 26% 3rd would get 17% 4th would get 10% 5th would get 5% 6th would get 3% 7th would get 2% How can I represent this with a formula when I have 2,000 entrants? What about 6 entrants? To say it one other way: 20% of the field will be paid a percentage based on a formula that slopes in the way I've illustrated above with the 7 places paid example. 7 places paid with the rate of 2-3-5-10-17-26-37 is a function I came up with based loosely on 1-4-9-16-25-36 or 12-22-32-42-52-62 (with some number fudging added to make the total equal 100% - though there has to be a more elegant way to do that...) Thanks so much for any guidance you can offer!
