how did you work that out please?
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)

so,

0.45x0.4 + 0.6x = 0.6

x=0.7=70% (assuming that 1st year is worth 0%?)
5. you want 60% total
work out first year actual percentage at 40% of your grade 45 x 0.4 = 18%
final year actual percentage at 60% 42/0.6=70%
not great at explaining things, hope this helps
