task 1 is out of 40 (40 marks for writing)
task 2 is out of 40 (40 marks for writing)
task 3 is out of 50 (40 marks for writing + 10 marks for reading)
You take the average the marks out of 40 for writing and add on the 10 marks for reading to get your final mark out of 50

so if you got 35/40 in task1, 37/40 in task 2, and 45/50 in task 3 (36 for writing and 9 for reading), then your final mark is (35+37+36)/3 + 9 = 36+9 = 45
