If weekly demand for a product is over five work days and assuming a bank holiday on a Thursday does not affect the weekly demand of 370 how should the total be distributed through the week ignoring Thursday?

Example

A normal week

Demand | Distribution factor | |

Mon | 100 | 1.351351 |

Tue | 80 | 1.081081 |

Wed | 80 | 1.081081 |

Thu | 60 | 0.810811 |

Fri | 50 | 0.675676 |

With no Thursday demand should the new distribution factors (yet to be decided) add to 4 given we have removed a day or can it be kept at 5, either way will give the total demand required but which is mathematically correct?
