## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I'm a complete math idiot and was wondering if somebody could help me out with an equation that I'm trying to solve.

Lets say I have the following percentages that equal 100%

24.57%

44.59%

3.64%

18.20%

9%

Now lets say I want to remove the 9% but I want the remaining 4 numbers to still equal 100%. How would I distribute the 9% difference? I should also add, I don't want to divide the 9% by 4 and then equal distribute that among the numbers I want them to absorb according to their current percentage. If that makes any sense at all.

Thanks
