Word Problem

The final counts 20% of your grade in calculus. You know what grade you have going in to the final. You know what grade you want in the course. Can you calculate what you need to score on the final to get the grade that you want?

If you're in my class, odds are that you either can't or won't.



Here, I'll do that for you. That way you'll know now that it's impossible for you to get an A in this class so you won't have to email me after grades are in asking why you didn't get an A. It's because it is impossible.
