Hello, I am so wonder how can a teacher finds it.

Well, my question is how do they get the general average of a student?

For example:

The quiz was rated as 15%%
The monthly test-20%%
The periodical test-25&%
Seatworks-10%
Homeworks-10%
Recitation-20%

Um, let's say I got 150 over 200 in all quizzes. So I got 87.5
In monthly test- 50/50. So I got 100%
In periodical test- I got 56/60. So I got around 97. (96.65)
In all seatworks, I got 375/400. So I got 96.875
In all homeworks, I got 195/220. So I got around 94 (94.3)
In recitation, let's say I got around about 90%

SO WHAT'S WHY GENERAL AVERAGE???

Please don't delete the topic if it does not belong here just PM back it to me and you mat delete it.

Anyway, if the topic is belong here please help me.

Those add up to 100. That is 100 "points."

Multiply each of these percentages times the first set of numbers and add them up.

Example, quiz = 87.5% correct X 15 = 13.125 "points"

Do that for each, and you will get your overall average.
