# annualizing with variable weights

I know this sounds like a math problem, but I am really wondering if there is an Excel shortcut.

So I have different weights for the months through out the year:
<TABLE style="WIDTH: 96pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=128 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" span=2 width=64><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD class=xl131 style="BORDER-RIGHT: silver 0.5pt solid;

How do I annualize that if I have Jan February data? Wasn't sure if there was a shortcut...I tired to google it and it came back with "climate of India"

I hope this isn't a stupid question...

Hi Kristin,

Maybe like this:

Code:
``````       -A- -B- C -D- -----------------------E------------------------
2   Jan  5%   100 D2: Input
3   Feb  8%   150 D3: Input
4   Mar  9%   173 D4 and down: =SUM(\$D\$2:\$D\$3)/SUM(\$B\$2:\$B\$3) * B4
5   Apr  7%   135
6   May  9%   173
7   Jun 11%   212
8   Jul  8%   154
9   Aug  7%   135
10   Sep  8%   154
11   Oct  9%   173
12   Nov  7%   135
13   Dec 11%   212``````

This part could just go in a separate cell instead of calculating repeatedly:

=SUM(\$D\$2:\$D\$3)/SUM(\$B\$2:\$B\$3)
