How do I sum all the combinations of a potential set of numbers?

I have a group of numbers (4,5,10,53,1.5) and I want to display a graph showing the distribution of outcomes if I pick an arbitrary percent out of the the group and sum them. This has to be incredibly simple, what is the name for what I am trying to do? Or how can I do this in Excel?

I think in mathematica you would total a subset
which would just spit out a list, I didn't know if there was a way to do this in Excel and put in a nice chart showing like "this uses 10% of the numbers, this uses 100%" etc.
