I'm confused.Can someone tell me if I have done this correct.I'm trying to get the average using a weighted scale:

TOTAL GRADES: WEIGHT

90% ---------- 5%

100% ---------15%

95% --------- 15%

90% -----------5%

94.5% --------60%

I multiplied the total grade by the percent, then added the percent. But I get 109.20 as a final grade but I know that can be right...please help me. Thanks

90+100+95+90+94.5 = 469.5

469.5/5 = 93.9 = average grade without weighting.(weight of .20 or 20% for each)

now do it with weighting

90*.05 +100*.15+95*.15+90*.05 +94.5*.60= 90.9 with weighting

90*.05 +100*.15+95*.15+90*.05 +94.5*.60= 90.9 = 94.95
