Can you help with a math problem?

In order to move onto the next math course I must get a C average overall.
70-79 is a C.
Final test is worth 60% of my grade
Quizes are 8%
Homework is 12%
Regular tests are 20%
So my exam is next week. What grade must I get if my homework average is a 92%, my quiz average is an 80%, my regular test average is 71%? Yes I know I am hurting terribly on the test scores....and since I am in math I should be able to figure this out. Math is not my best subject. thanks for your help

  • 60%xFT + 8%xQ + 12%xH + 20%xRT = 70 (minimum)

    .6xFT + .08x(80) + .12x(92) + .2x(71) = 70

    .6FT + 6.4 + 11.04+ 14.2= 70

    .6FT + 31.64 = 70

    .6FT = 38.36

    Final Test = 64 to pass

  • The calculation I did above is called taking the "weighted average". Good luck with your test!

  • I'm not good with math, but with the final test counting as more than half your final grade, I'd say you need to score pretty high.
