    The first list of numbers is the number of syllables, and the second list of numbers is how many there is of this number of syllables. so the second list of numbers obviously makes 100%, so what does the individual numbers make.

    :rofl: seriously? Wow, this makes a nice change! Sitting lots of SHL Numerical tests (the ones you sit when you apply for graduate jobs) has made me a relative expert in percentages!

    Well, to work out percentage of syllables you have (in relation to the total number there are) you use the formula:

    Percentage = (how many syllables you have)/(all the syllables there are) x 100.

    Can you apply that formula?

    EDIT: Well, okay, I'll do the first one for you. Consider the top line "Monosyllabic 84" for a second. You have one syllable and there are 84 in total, so the percentage here will be (1/84) x 100, whatever that may be (get a calculator).
