Default priming sugar?

so I am bottling my beer today.

My question is- should i add the priming sugar to the whole batch, or should i add it to each individual bottle? AND What is the ratio or formula for amount of priming sugar to add to either per bottle or whole batch

I made a wheat beer with dry malt, Wyeat weinhanstephaner yeast and Hallertau hops. Im not sure if style of beer effects the amount of priming sugar.

Most people batch prime unless using carbonation drops for individual bottles. Here is a good calculator which includes the option to carb to style.
