exam result question

If a student gets 37% on a midterm and then gets a 46.5% on a final paper and there is a condition that if the final result is better than the mid term result the weight changes from 5030 final to midterm to 7010 final to midterm what effect should this have on the result , I cant do the maths

Teeing myself up for embarrassment here, but is it not...
M = 37% F = 46.5%
IF  M:F is 30:50, then... M = 0.37 x 30, or 11.1, and F = 0.5 x 46.5, or 23.25 M+F = 34.35% total grade (aside from the missing 20%)
but if M:F is 70:10, then... M = 0.1 x 37, or 3.7m and F = 0.7 x 46.5, or 32.55 M+F = 36.25% total grade (aside from the missing 20%)

If you divide the final percentage quartile by the remainder of the last long divison sum completed, it gives you the answer.

Its a worry that working out how exams are graded is harder than the actual exam

I’d take the kid to a school where they didn’t put such here stupid conditions on assessments.
