To get a final grade of 72, you need a 72 on the exam. For a final grade of 75, you need an 72 on the exam. For a final grade of 80, you need a 99 on the exam. If you get 100 on the exam, your final grade will be a little over 80.

20%

If the exam is worth 30% of the overall score, then the classwork is worth 100 % - 30% = 70% of the overall score. If you have scored 72% on your classwork, this is 70% of your overall score, ie 70% × 72% = 50.4 %. As you have already passed 50%, you do not need to score anything in your exam to pass overall with 50%. If you prefer working with numbers (as opposed to percentages), then: assume the whole testing includes 1,000 questions (it doesn't matter how many, but 1,000 leads to whole numbers) → 30% = 30/100 × 1,000 = 300 are asked in the exam → 1,000 - 300 = 700 asked in class. → To pass with 50% you need to get 50/100 × 1,000 = 500 questions right. → 72% right in class is 72/100 × 700 = 504 questions right → 504 > 500 → you have exceeded 50% already. If this is not hypothetical but based on your current situation, I would not recommend that you avoid doing any work for your exam (or skip it altogether), but instead try your best and see if you could get an overall pass of 80% (which would be 100% in the exam).

-- It depends on how many previous quizzes went into the 65.22%. -- Also on whether the 65.22% included other things, like homework or attendance. -- It depends on how much weight the teacher wants to give the Final Exam. -- In any case, using our vast resources of higher mathematics, we can pretty well guarantee that your total grade will be lower than 65.22% . May we wish you the best of luck in the course, particularly if you wind up enjoying it again next year, and say that we hope for your sake that it's not math.

80% of 160 can be changed into 0.8(160). The answer is 128 points.

You need at least a 75% on your exam.

The mark you now have, 68, is worth 47.6 of your final mark (70% of 68 = 47.6).

85% of your grade is a 68 and 15% is zero. 0.85 x 68 + 0.15 x 0 = 58, your final grade.

The answer depends on the percentage required for a pass. This is not a fixed value.

To get a final grade of 72, you need a 72 on the exam. For a final grade of 75, you need an 72 on the exam. For a final grade of 80, you need a 99 on the exam. If you get 100 on the exam, your final grade will be a little over 80.

Since there is no overall target given, it is not possible to answer the question precisely. However, x% in the final exam will give an overall percentage of 0.65*x + 28.75 percent.

your mark would be 56.10%

you would need anything higher than an 87 because its an average and if you get lower there is no way it can get to a 87.

It depends on your overall grade. Just from the question it sounds as if you are not doing too well in the class. Think of a higher grade than just a passing one and you are more apt to pass the test.

(.8*Current Grade)+(.2*Exam Score)

0.8 * 70 = 56 <--- that is your mark right now. Lets say you got a 100 on the exam. 0.2 * 100 = 20 <--- add that to your current mark to get final mark. 56 + 20 = 76 So even if you got 100 on your exam, the highest mark you could get overall is 76%. Which isn't that bad compared to the kids in my class. :P Well good luck on your exam! :D
