# [Fixed] How to get total percent distribution out of 100% for the underlying denominator for each column in angular 8

## Issue

I have simple function of calculating the sum of numbers and strings in columns in a table. The sum works well and gives me correct results. The issue is that whenever I try to divide the total sum of each column with 100 I end up with wrong values

Scenario A

I have a sum of `969.35` in column A, whenever I divide the value with `100` I expect to get `9.69` but I end up with `0.51` . Am not sure why this is being calculated as so.

This is my implementation of getting the sum

``````getSum(columnNumber) {
let sum = 0;
const columnNumberToPropertyMap = [
"id",
"teamNumber",
"rural",
"completed",
"entirehouseholdabsent",
"postponed",
"refused",
"vacant",
"dwelling"
];
const property = columnNumberToPropertyMap[columnNumber];
return this.rural.reduce((acc, curr) => {
//const adder = Number(curr[property]) || 0;
const adder = isNaN(Number(curr[property])) ? 0 : Number(curr[property]);
return sum;
}, 0).toFixed(2);
}
``````

the above code works well as I can get the sum of each coiumn.

How I am trying to get the percentage

`````` getSum(columnNumber) {
let sum = 0;
let percentage = 0;
const columnNumberToPropertyMap = [
"id",
"teamNumber",
"rural",
"completed",
"entirehouseholdabsent",
"postponed",
"refused",
"vacant",
"dwelling"
];
const property = columnNumberToPropertyMap[columnNumber];
return this.rural.reduce((acc, curr) => {
//const adder = Number(curr[property]) || 0;
const adder = isNaN(Number(curr[property])) ? 0 : Number(curr[property]);
percentage = (sum)/100;
return percentage ;
}, 0).toFixed(2);
}
``````

What am I doing wrong?

## Solution

Do this it will be fine. You are dividing each time which is causing issue.
Percentage should be outside of reduce loop.

``````(this.rural.reduce((acc, curr) => {
//const adder = Number(curr[property]) || 0;
const adder = isNaN(Number(curr[property])) ? 0 : Number(curr[property]);
