I feel really stupid for asking this question but i don't know where to find out how to do it.

I have a number is columns A, B and C

Say in column A i have 1000, column B is 30000 and column C is 10000.

In column D and E i want to know (in number format) what percentage of column A goes in these columns. I would expect column D to have 666.66 and column E to have 333.33.

I know it's a simple sum but i really can't remember the math to find out these numbers.

Can anyone please remind me how to do this?

Are you sure it's not 750 and 250?
I'm not sure what logic you are using to hit 2/3rds and 1/3rds out of the above numbers.

I suspect you're looking for something like:
D2: =$A2*(B2/SUM($B2:$C2))
copied right into E2: =$A2*(C2/SUM($B2:$C2))

Though this would give you 750 (1000 * 3/4) and 250 (1000 * 1/4)
