Exclamation Nutrients per serving?

A little help from the mods, please: I entered all the ingredients in a recipe, then created a new food with the results. When I entered my new food on a new page and divided it by the number of servings (4, so I entered .25 for serving size), the numbers for many of the micro-nutrients seemed to be way, way off. For example, the whole recipe gave me 128% of my RDA of vitamin B6, but the 1 serving size, instead of (.25 of 128 = 32%), gave me 14%. This happened in most of the fields. Some were closer to 25%, but most were farther away, and some were off the charts.
(The numbers for the macros were pretty much spot on, it was the vitamins and minerals were the discrepancies occurred.)
Then I went back on a new page and entered approx. 1/4 of each ingredient. The nutrient results were a lot closer to the expected 25% of the full recipe.
Thoughts?
