pre algebra
posted by Amber shall .
my grade is 83.17 in pre algebra in college, but the final exam is worth 300 points. If I got a B or B or a C on the final, what would my grade be overall?

That depends upon the total number of points for the class.

it depends on the percent weight of the final exam. (e.g. 40% of your grade, 35% of your grade, etc.) assuming your grading scheme for a B is around 83%... and assume your final exam is worth 40% of your overall grade and the rest of your grade (83.17%) is 60% of your overall grade:
total grade= (0.8317 X 0.60) + (0.83 X 0.40) X 100% = 83.10%
that would be your grade if you got a B (ie. 83%) on your final. i hope you get the formula. 
23 3/5  8 8/15
