    My wife’s 401K has limited offerings. My ideal choice would be to buy 100% Vanguard Total Stock Market Index (VTSAX) but they don’t offer it so instead I’m trying to replicate it using Vanguard Growth Index and Vanguard Value Index. If I want to replicate VTSAX, would I put 50% of my investment in each of these or is VTSAX weighted more heavily toward value or growth?

    A separate question is how do you small/mid and large cap weight in the market? If I wanted to purchase the total stock market proportionally and I only have two funds: 1. Small/mid cap index and 2. large cap index. Which percentage would I devote to each of those funds to replicate the total Stock market index?
