    1.  Add up all the gram amounts to get a total # of grams. Call it T
    2.  To get percentage, take the gram amount of an ingredient and divide it by the Total grams. (then multiply by 100)

    So, if you have a formula that is 200g total.
    And one of the component materials is 10g.
    The percentage of that ingredient in the formula is = 10g/200g = 0.05 x 100 = 5%
