In this paper we explore analogous properties for a weighted version of [[PI].sub.n], introduced by Dotsenko and Khoroshkin [6] in their study of Koszulness of certain quadratic binary operads. A weighted partition of [n] is a set [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] where {[B.sub.1], [B.sub.2], ..., [B.sub.t]} is apartition of [n] and [[upsilon].sub.i] [member of] {0,1,2, ..., [absolute value of [B.sub.i]], - 1} for all i.
