I need help calculating my grade if I have a 77% and 54/54 on A Chapter test what is my current grade

Observing members: 0 Composing members: 0  Not enough information. We don’t know how the teacher calculates grades (straight line or a curve?). We also don’t know how many other tests and assignments make up the 77%.

So it’s impossible to tell how this will affect your grade without knowing more about how they are figured in the first place.

How many chapter tests have you had so far, and are they equally weighted?

In the second case, it would give you a total score of 1,594 out of 2,054, which would raise your grade to 77.6%.

If this is in Math class, I suggest you ask your teacher for some help understanding how statistics work, and ho two frame a question on percentages.
