I'm not sure if I totally understand your question, but this is how I see it. It is probably easiest to give an example. Consider the data set: 1, 3, 3, 4, 6, 8, 8, 9.

Find the sum of the data: 42

Then if you want to know the decimal equivalent of a specific data point, you divide that amount by the sum.

eg. Take the data point 3. Then 3÷42= 0.0714 (to 4 dp)

Or the data point 9. 9÷42= 0.2142
