    Math/Grade help

    My mind is dead this morning and I cant figure this out...

    Right now I have 77% in a class, and only have one test left which is worth 17% of the overall grade.

    What % do I need to get on the final test to at least maintain a 75% in the class?

    Thanks in advance!

    Let me google that for you

    Third one down is a really simple page...
    Final Grade Calculator - RogerHub


    Formula: Final Grade = (Final Exam’s Worth)*(Score on Final Exam) + (1 – Final Exam’s Worth)*(Overall Grade)

    LOL not a math class. I think I just got it. The final test is worth 100 points and I would need to get at least 66 of them right.

    Re: Math/Grade help

    83*.77 = 63.91

    75-63.91 = 11.09

    11.09/17 = .6524 = 65.24%

    Boom, Math'd!
