What grade must I earn on the final to get a ? in this course?
### "What grade must I earn on the final to get a ? in this course?"

Here's the answer to that question for students in Kunkle's
Math 104
class
now that you've completed **three** exams and (nearly) all of the quizes.
Let X be the sum of your three midterm exam scores, and let Y be your
quiz average out of fifty. X will be a number somewhere between
0 and 300, and Y will be between 0 and 50. Our ninth and final quiz will be on Dec 5.
Remember to drop your lowest ** two** quizes
before averaging.

Let Z stand for the percentage corresponding to your target grade.

Letter grade: |
A | A- | B+ | B |
B- | C+ | C | C- |
D+ | D | D- |

Minimum required score: |
90% | 87% | 83% | 80% |
77% | 73% | 70% | 67% |
63% | 60% | 57% |

For instance, if you target grade is a B+, then Z =.83
The final exam is worth 150 points.
To achieve your target grade in the course,
you must earn
either Z*450 - X points or Z*500 - X - Y points out of 150
on the final, whichever is lower.
