I=10,000 E=1000 P=9,000 R=20,000: score = 11000/20000 = 55%

or

I=10,000 E=9,000 P=1,000 R=2,000: score = 1000/10000 = 10%

or

I=5,000 E=10,000 P=-5,000 R=2,000; Score = 7000/10000 = 70%

or

I=5,000 E=10,000 P=-5,000 R=-2,000: score = 3000/10000 = 30%

or

I=5,000 E=5,000 P=0 R=2,000: score = 2000/5000 = 40%

or

I=-5,000 E=10,000 P=-5,000 R=0 (very rare): How can I be negative? If that is not a typo then score = 5000/10000 = 50%
