Is this what you want?

```+ 1 1
+ 1 2
+ 1 3
+ 2 4
+ 2 3
+ 3 7
+ 3 9
+ 3 3

> data.frame(x, value=ave(x\$A, x\$Index, FUN=function(z) z / sum(z)))
Index A     value
1     1 1 0.1666667
2     1 2 0.3333333
3     1 3 0.5000000
4     2 4 0.5714286
5     2 3 0.4285714
6     3 7 0.3500000
7     3 9 0.4500000
8     3 3 0.1500000
9     3 1 0.0500000

```
