    Another vector question

    This one really has me stumped.

    Questions reads: there are five students in a class. Their scores on the midterm (out of 100) are given by the vector v= (73,80,91,65,84). Their scores on the final (out of 100) are given by the vector w= (82,79,88,70,92). The final counts twice as much as the midterm. Find a vector giving the total score (out of 100) of the students.

    At first I thought it might be 2w+v but I quickly recognized that would not work. Thought about it some more and I am still stumped. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    2w+v will give you a vector out of 300. How would you convert this to a vector out of 100?
