Your mark is 92% of everything you have so far, which is only 90% of your overall mark.  That means of the 10% project, you have a further 57%.  

To find the final mark, you are work with the two marks together to get a total out of 100:

`92(0.90)+57(0.10)`    multiply then add

`=82.8+5.7`  now add

`=88.5`

The new percentage is 88.5%
