I don't know how you are using Excel, except if it has the proportions of a normal distribution.
Z = (scoremean)/SD = (score360)/9
Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the Z scores that correspond to the above proportions. Insert the Z scores in the equation above to find the scores(weights).
