Hi, welcome to the board.
What exactly should the result be for this data ?
Is it the percentage of 6/11, or 4/11, or 1/11, or 4/6, or 1/6, or something else ?

Assuming 6, 4, 1 are in A2, B2, C2:

=A2/SUM(\$A2:\$C2)%

in say A3 copied across to C3 (put formula in A3, select A3:C3, Ctrl+R).

That doesn't help me at all

To work out the percentage of two numbers, one in A1 and the other in A2, use
=a1/a2 and format the cell as %.

AdamL has described how to do a more complicated percentage calculation.

Yes MSG Mark I'm now doubting that I understood your original question.

Perhaps another description of what you require might help.

Thank you Mr. Higgins
That is exactly what I needed. I just needed to reverse it b2/a2
Thanks everyone
