Analyse data using a range based percentual proximity algorithm
and calculate the linear maximum likelihood estimation.
The basic principle is that all values supplied will be broken
down to a range from 0 to 1 and each column's score will be added
up to get the total score.

==========
Example for data of vehicles
price|mileage|registration_year
20k  |60k    |2012
22k  |50k    |2011
23k  |90k    |2015
16k  |210k   |2010

We want the vehicle with the lowest price,
lowest mileage but newest registration year.
Thus the weights for each column are as follows:
[0, 0, 1]
