### How do you figure final grade if term grades are worth 88 percent of total grade and final is worth 12 percent?

This is the problem of finding a "weighted average", that is to
say, some items have more "weight" than others.
To avoid confusions, I will convert the 88% to 0.88,and the 12%
to 0.12. You can also convert everything to decimals.
For example, if you get 80% for your term grades, and 70% for
your final exam, you multiply as follows:
(80% x 0.88) + (70% x 0.12) = 0.788 or 78.8%. Note that the term
grades, having a larger "weight", affect the final grade much more
than the exam; the final grade is much closer to the term grades
than to the final exam grade. In this example, this works to your
advantage, because the final exam has a lower grade.
