# Sum of weights

Asked by
Eirini Kasimi

Dear experts,

I would like to ask you a more general question. I am wondering how the sum of weights is computed. I use as an example this sample: mc16_13TeV.

If I assume that the sum of weights represents the number of event, how can a sum of weight=0.92, which is the sum of weights of the above sample, represent a number of events?

So, is it another "meaning" of the sum of weights in Madgrpah?

Thanks in advance,

Eirini Kasimi
