Headscratcher: for the mathematician inside you

Everybody, take your calculator! It's maths time!
If you were to rank your favorite albums of U2, so that it all adds up to one hundred percent.
I decided to do the last two decades but if you wanna do them all, be my guest.

1. Achtung baby 23%
2. Pop 22%
3. HTDAAB 21%
4. ALTYCLB 16%
5. Zooropa 12%
6. Passengers 4%
7. Best of 80-90 1%
8. Best of 90-00 1%

Yes! And without any calculator! Great, now I'm late for work!
Good luck!

It seems unfair to include the Best Of albums really - save for a couple of new songs, we've heard them all before already!

Btw, I can't be arsed trying to do this and I'm a maths undergrad

So I was actually going to post a serious response to this question. Except my list starts out like this:

Achtung Baby 50%

And after that, I realized that despite being in accounting and being able to manipulate numbers with the best of them, there's no way in hell I can make a list that comes up to 100%

give all option marks out of 10....then sumtotal all marks...

and % of each album - marks obtained out of 10 for this album/ sum total of all marks given to all albums... ..multiplied by 100 ofcourse

this is an approximation u can use
