How to calculate final exam grades?

  1. May 31, 2014 #1
    For example:
    17/30 for class assessment (worth 30% of final grade)
    18/30 for assignment (worth 30% of final grade)
    How do you figure out how much you would need for the final exam (worth 40% of final grade)

    Thanks!

    Welcome to PF;
    Hint: what are percentages?

    If the final exam were marked out of 40, would that help?

    You also need to know if and how the professor curves the grade, and what your goal is for your grade.
