### Question Description

If I'm doing an assignment and the pass mark is 40% and I have to do 2 assignments to pass. One assignment is for 20% of the overall marks and one is for 80% of the overall marks. If the assignment is 300 marks overall (I'm assuming 120 marks is needed to pass) and I got 62 percent of the marks in the 20% assignment. How many marks from the 80% assignment will I need to get overall if the test is out of 100.

## Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

(62/100)*20=12.4% for the 20% assignment.

the remaining percentage for you to pass is 40-12.4=27.6%

therefore, (x/100)*80=27.6

x=(100/80)*27.6

x= 34.5 marks
