How many marks have you got out of the possible 100?

48% of 80 is 38.4 and 0% of 20 is 0

(38.4+0)/100 *100 = 38.4%

so the overall percentage would be 38.4%

Try to calculate in fractions or decimal numbers. Just to explain it for you:

100% = 100/100 = 1
48% = 48/100 = 0.48
0% = 0/100 = 0

and so on. It gets easier with it.
