I have some coursework which is weighted 20/80

For the piece that is worth 20% I got 65

What do I need to get in the piece that is worth 80% to get 70% overall???? I calculated as 71% but I’m not sure this is right.


Thanks!

That’s the percentage- so 65% out of 100%

It would be easier to calculate with the raw marks compared to percentages. What are the raw marks for 20% and 80%?
