Well, let's work this out.

All the exams totaled up are 239, so now we divide that by 3 (total number of exams taken) to get the average which is 79.666.

Homework I'll just go with the old way of grading which is an A is 90%, B is 80% and so on. For your homework, your average is 75%.

Now we multiply these numbers by the percentage. For example, your exams are an average of 79.666, and account for 0.5 of your grade. 79.666*0.5=39.83. Your homework is 75*0.4=30. Now you add 39.83+30 and you come out with a final grade of 69.83 or a D+ almost a C-, it will probably be rounded to a C-.

EDIT: You also then have to factor in the last 10% of what ever which will probably bump you up to about a 76-77% (C+) if your numbers are steady.

Just edited my post, you're missing another 10% somewhere which if your numbers are steady will bump you up to about 76-77% or a C+.

Sorry, I did my math wrong, I didn't see 1-5, for homework I just calculated 5 and 6. So updated with 1-7 your total is 76%, then we multiply that by 0.4 and come up with 30.4, then we add that to the 39.83 to come up with 70.23% total grade plus the missing 10% which I assume is class assignments?

One thing I'm having trouble with is your homework, you say 1-5 is 11/14 then say 5 is a C, so is 5 a C or is 5 a 11/14? If it's a C then that comes out to a 77% which is 30.8% to your final grade which comes out to 70.63% plus the missing 10%. If homework 5 is an 11/14, then that would come out to 78.33% for your homework, or 31.33% to your final grade for a final grade of 71.16% plus the missing 10% of the final grade.

I'm having a lot of trouble with the way you're wording things in the homework lol, can you post what all the final numbers are in 1 post?

Okie dokie, let's clear up my confusion lol.

EXAMS:
63+83+93=293. We take 293 and divide that by the 3 exams taken to find the average which is 79.66%. Since this is 50% of your grade, we multiply 79.66 by 0.5 and come out with 39.83%.

HOMEWORK:
11/14=78%
78+78+78+78+78+70+80=540. Again we take 540 and divide that by 7 to come up with an average score of 77.14%. Since this is 40% of the grade, we multiply 77.14*0.4 to come up with 30.85%.

TOTAL:
Now we just add them up, so 39.83+30.85=70.68%. In your PM you sent me, you asked what if you scored an 85% in what ever category accounts for the remaining 10%. Again we just work out the math, 85*0.1=8.5%. Now we add 8.5+70.68 to come up with 79.18% final grade.
