    Hey, I need to work out my overall percentage for a module but I'm numerically challenged and could do with some help...
    I got 90% in a presentation worth 10% of the total.. 54% in an essay worth 30% and 64% in an essay worth 60%.
    Anybody with a better brain than me? I'd be grateful haha

    I make it 63.6%, but I don't have a calculator on me to check.

    Found one-pretty sure I'm right.

    (0.9*0.1)+(0.54*0.3)+(0.64*0.6) = 0.636

    63.6% is your answer

    You need 30% in that essay to get 40% overall.(Think here, both your marks are over 40%, how could you need more than 40% now?)
