Q:

A student has passed 60 percent of the 20 quizzes he has written so far successfully. if the student writes 50 quizzes during the year, and passes 80 percent of the remaining quizzes successfully, what would his average percentile be?answer:

Accepted Solution

A:
60% of 20 is (0.6 x 20) = 12 passes There are a further 30 quizzes remaining (50 total during the year minus 20 already written) 80% of 30 is (0.8 x 30) = 24 passes The student has passed (12 + 24) = 36 quizzes out of 50 total, giving an overall pass percentage of ((36 / 50) x 100)) = 72%.
