    0.45x0.4 (you got 45%, its worth 40%) + 0.6x (next year is worth 60% and x is the % you need) =0.6 (60% so 2:1)


    0.45x0.4 + 0.6x = 0.6

    x=0.7=70% (assuming that 1st year is worth 0%?)

    you want 60% total
    work out first year actual percentage at 40% of your grade 45 x 0.4 = 18%
    your goal minus what you already have 60-18=42%
    final year actual percentage at 60% 42/0.6=70%
    not great at explaining things, hope this helps
