    Any Maths experts That can help me with find percentage of a percentage?

    I am doing a HNC in Telecomunications and in one subject i have a exam which is 80% of the overall mark and a essay which is 20% of the final mark.

    In the exam i got 64%
    what mark would i need to get in the essay to get my overall mark for the module to 65%? and how do you work it out.

    Thanks

    next to nothing, you ony need 1%, surely about 2 -3 % of the 20 would get you 1% of the lot

    5 % of the 20 would be 1 % of the whole thing.

    20 % is one fifth of the total, therefore for every 5 % in it its 1 % in the overall score.

    64% of 80 = 51.2% of the final mark
    Therefore you need a score of 14 to reach 65% of the final mark from the essay.
    70% of 20 = 14
    So you need a score of 70% from your essay.
