You will have to explain this a bit more clearly.  In particular:

- what is in a "row", and how do rows relate to groups?

- are the groups something that already exists in the data array, or are we free 
to make them up?

- are the multipliers given, or are they to be computed?


More generally, try to

1. define each concept you use (data array, row, group, ...)
2. specify what is a parameter (input), and what is a variable (to be computed)


Cheers,
Joachim
