How to normalize data with certain Luminosity

Dear developers,

May be this questions seems pretty odd to you, but i am posting here because of may be some one here to help me to do this. Actually problem is I want to normalize/scale my data with a luminosity of 36 fb-1 (inverse femto barn). I donot know how to normalize this data. I have to take a comparison of data to monte carlo. I normalize my monte carlo by using this formula
double All_events = Entries/x-sec;
double lumi = global lumi/ All_evets;
But for data I only know the luminosity. Kindly help me to do this.



this looks perhaps more like a question for experiments’ experts rather than a technical question about root.
