## How the calculator works

The calculator works by taking your inputted grade info like percent grade, letter grade, weights, etc, and running them through a common mathematical grading formula to find your average grade.

It specifically takes your grade value from each task and multiplies it by the corresponding weight or maximum points. That sum is then divided by the total sum of the weight or max points. That new value is your average grade.

Here’s the common grading formula that is used by the calculator to calculate your grades: *(Average grade) = (grade1 x weight1 + grade2 x weight2 + … + gradeN x weightN) / (weight1 + weight2 + … + weightN)*
