    How to calculate what I need to get on my Midterm in order to keep my B

    I have an 84.9 percent in my AP World History Class and I have a midterm that is worth 100 points which is placed into my Tests category. I have the following categories:

    Tests - Weighted as 50% of my grade
    Homework - Weighted as 30% of my grade
    Reading/Listening Quizzes - Weighted as 20% percent of my grade

    Now, I was wondering what I need to get on the midterm in order to maintain my B. Now I can take it as low as 80.00% but no lower.

    The Current amount of points I have in each category is the following:

    Tests - 294.6 / 365
    Homework - 158 / 167
    Reading/Listening Quizzes - 124 / 153


    Also, my midterm is tomorrow, so the sooner the responses the better!

    Thanks in advance!!

    Is your midterm the only remaining assessment? What is it out of? Is it considered a test?

    Yes, it is the only remaining assessment and it is out of 100 points and is considered a test.

    You need to solve this...

     <br />
0.5\left( \frac{294.6}{365} +\frac{x}{100}\right)+ 0.3\left( \frac{158}{167} \right)+ 0.2\left( \frac{124}{153}\right) = 80<br />

    Your university might have a policy like mine which says you must get at least xx% in order to pass, even though you only need 34.6%

    So check that out first.
