∑xw

∑w​, where w is the weight of the piece of​ data, x; ∑xw is the sum of the products of each piece of data multiplied by its​ weight; and ∑w is the sum of the weights.

    The easiest way to think of this is like you had ten tests. Because the midterm is 40% of your final grade, four of these tests will have the score of 77. And because the final exam is 60% of your final grade, six of these tests will have the score of 67. Like so:

    77

    77

    77

    77

    67

    67

    67

    67

    67

    67

    If you total these, you get 710. Divided that by 10 to get the average and your answer is 71.

    I never learned to do it with that particular formula, though.
