Division Merit Increase Cost of Living

Division B (User 2) 1,200 / 30,000 = 4.00% 1,500 / 30,000 = 5.00%
Division C (User 3) 1,050 / 30,000 = 3.50% 900 / 30,000 = 3.00%
Overall (300 + 1,200 + 1,050 + 2,080) / (10,000 + 30,000 + 30,000 + 83,200) = 3.02% (400 + 1,500 + 900 + 1,664) / (10,000 + 30,000 + 30,000 + 83,200) = 2.91%
