## Technodynamic 3 years ago Quick question: My final exam today is worth 25% of my final grade, what score would I need to get on the final to pass with a 4.0??? So far I have: 95/100 on Exam 1. 90/100 on Exam 2.

1. Technodynamic

I'm really taking a final today.

2. lgbasallote

it depends on the range of 4.0 is it 95-100?

3. Technodynamic

4.0 ranges from 90-100

4. Romero

You have to get at least the lowest range of an A

5. lgbasallote

it actually depends on the percentage of the final exam...percentage of the quizzes..and all other rubrics...

6. Romero

You have two other exams that weight more than your final exam?

7. lgbasallote

so as for your problem i'll choose E. not enough information given :P

8. dpflan

How is the grade determined? Total points obtained / Total points available? Or 75% based on exams and 25% based on final?

9. Technodynamic

75% for exams one and two. 25% for the final.

10. lgbasallote

average of 2 quizzes * 0.75 + 0.25x = 90 ave = 185/2 = 92.5 92.5 * 0.75 + 0.25x = 90 0.25x = 90 - 69.375 0.25x = 20.625 x = 82.5 pts

11. lgbasallote

these are the times i love algebra \m/ hehe

12. dpflan

OK, and does the class depend upon points earned? e.g. you earned 95 points of 100 on exam1, so your average is a 95, then you earned 90 out 100 on exam2, so you earned a total of 185/200 = .925. If we assume it just works off the final grade, then you have the equation: (.75)(185/200) + (.25)(FINAL EXAM points earned/points total) = .9 (.75) * (.925) + (.25) * (FPE/FPT) = .9 (.9 - (.75)*(.925))/.25 = (FPE/FPT)

13. Technodynamic

Yes points earned, and Thanks guys!

14. dpflan

But that you can aim for higher than .9, in fact aiming for a 100 would be the best scenario of course ;)

15. Technodynamic

lol yeah for sure. I hope to pass the final lol

16. inkyvoyd

Are averages weighted? or are they all the same?

17. inkyvoyd

If one test counts more than another, then you have to do calculations differently.

18. lgbasallote

lol i think you pass the subject without the finals already :P what subject is that?

19. inkyvoyd

20. Technodynamic

Biochemistry :X lol

21. inkyvoyd

Eh. Biochem doesn't need that much math.

22. Technodynamic

Yeah. It's a lot of pressure trying to get decent grades. I'm taking other classes, and the workload they give is almost super tiresome. I think i might do okay.......Hopefully lol.

23. inkyvoyd

Just don't do anything engineering. I mean, that would suck.

24. Technodynamic

Engineering requires a lot of math <--my weakest subject lol. I'll stick to science for now. haha
