If someone were to weight the shot by shot length the weighted average would have been: (10.3*10.3 + 10.8*10.8 + 10.5*10.5)/(10.3+10.8+10.5) or about 10.54 While shot length may, in some cases, be a good estimate of the correct weights, one can see here that it is not the same as using the correct weights.
Weight matrices on physical grounds have to be symmetric, so the weight has to have N columns and N rows.

An interpolation method that uses a weighted average of function values at the natural neighbors of an arbitrary point to determine an interpolated value at that point.
Given a sequence of function values and a matching sequence of real numbers, called weights, such that the sum of all of the weights is unity, then the sum of all of the products of the weights times the function values is called a weighted average of the function values.

 The English Section Weighted Average Requirement
The English Section 'Weighted Average Requirement' was modified in August 2005 to reflect the different requirements for students who are continuing with the 'old' curriculum and students who began in September 2005 with the new curriculum.
The 'weighting' procedure multiplies the numerical grade for each course by the number of study weeks awarded for the course; the resulting points from each course are then added, providing a sum which is divided by 8 (the total number of study weeks for all five courses).
Calculation of the weighted average (and consideration of other factors affecting student eligibility) will be done by the English Section Assistant in consultation with the section teaching staff.

 Moving Average (Weighted)
The weighted moving average is calculated by averaging together the previous values over the given period, including the current value.
These values are weighted linearly, with the oldest value receiving a weight of 1, the next value receiving a weight of 2, and so on up to the current value, which receives a weight equal to the period.
The moving average at the beginning of a data series is not defined until there are enough values to fill the given period.

 The Weighted Average Cost of Capital
The weighted cost of capital (WACC) and the return on invested capital (ROIC) are the most important elements in company valuation and the basis for most strategy and performance evaluation methods.

 the mass spectra of elements
The relative atomic mass of an element is the weighted average of the masses of the isotopes relative to 1/12 of the mass of a carbon-12 atom.
A "weighted average" allows for the fact that there won't be equal amounts of the various isotopes.
The average mass of these 123 atoms would be 1330 / 123 = 10.8 (to 3 significant figures).

 Constructing Uniformly Weighted Moving Average Charts
When the subgroup sample sizes are constant, the width of the control limits for the first w moving averages decreases monotonically because each of the first w moving averages includes one more term than the preceding moving average.
A more systematic approach is to choose w by considering its effect on the average run length (the expected number of points plotted before a shift is detected).
The following SAS program computes the average run length for a two-sided moving average chart for various shifts in the mean.
