```Is this what you want ?

In[193]:=
liste={2,2,1};

In[195]:=
Plus@@liste

Out[195]=
5

In[196]:=
1/Plus@@liste*liste

Out[196]=
{2/5, 2/5, 1/5}

Objet : [mg49313] Sum of list elements

I'm trying to find a function [possibly a way to make a function] which
calculate the sum of the elements of a list.

Right now, the purpose is to find the relative distribution of the
elements of a list. That is, I need a way to get out that the
distribution of:

{2, 2, 1}

is

{2/5, 2/5, 1/5}.

Had I been able to get the sum of the list elements in this way:

Sum[{2, 2, 1}]

it could had been done with:

l = {2, 2, 1}
l / Sum[l]
