    Semester Final Equation

    Anyone know the semester test equation to determine what percent you need to get on the final to pass the class? Final is 20 percent of my grade.

    If the final is 20%, then your final grade would be determined by:

    (0.20)*(FINAL-EXAM) + (0.80)*(NON-FINAL) = COURSE-SCORE

    where FINAL is the grade you get (or anticipate) on the final exam, NON-FINAL is the weighted-average score of all the non-final-exam items (regular tests, homework, etc), and COURSE-SCORE is the overall grade for the class. You can rearrange this to get the required final exam score as follows:

    ( COURSE-SCORE - (0.80)*(NON-FINAL) ) / (0.20) = FINAL-EXAM

    I hope your final isn't in a math or stat class.

    Uh Oh. If you are asking how to calculate a 20% final and you're one year ahead, that's not saying much for the rest of your class.
