Needing some help building an equation for a complex word problem.

 

There is a Progression bar that starts at 1 and tops out at 500.

 

The Progression bar has 5 categories within it. As those catergories increase, the overall Progression bar increases. Each catergory makes up 25% (250 points) overall of the Progression bar. 

 

Those 5 catergories that make up the overall Progression bar have 5 different levels to it. 

 

Level 1: 0-50

Level 2: 51-100

Level 3: 101-500

Level 4: 501 - 999

Level 5: 1000

 

What would the equation look like in order for the overall Progession bar to grow?

 

Thank you in advance.
