i want to ensure i am calculating this correctly

if  i have a total of 266/335 is it safe to say it is about 79/100 ?

trying to estimate some grades.

if 284/195 ( thats 30% of the final grade )
and 82/140 ( is the 40% of the final grade )

how much do i need on final ( 30% of the final grade) to get an A ?

( i estimated ...95+..)

any input would be appreciated.

Yes, 266/335 is about 79/100
Does 284/195 mean 46% extra credit above a perfect score?

Did you mean 184/195?
184/195 * .30 + 82/140 * .40 + .95 * .30 would be just over 80%   Is that an A?

do not worry about what you have to get on the final test.
Just do the best you can.
