Hi, Mavig,

First, you would multiply the number of credit hours by the number of points for each grade. For example, Communications was a 1 credit hour class. And, the students received a B in the class, which corresponds to 4 points. So:

1*4 = 4

You would do that with each class first:

Communications - 1*4 = 4

Accounting - 5*2 = 10

Math - 2*6 = 12

Economics - 4*2 = 8

Marketing - 3*1 = 3

Computers - 2*6 = 12

Adding these up, 4+10+12+8+3+12 = 49 total points.

Now, you divide that by the total number of hours the student took, which is 17 hours. So:

49/17 = 2.88

So, the GPA = 2.88

Good luck, Quddoos. I hope this helps.

Till Then,

GPA = (acquired points / total possible points) * 6` `

(if on a 6.0 scale)

Acquired point per class = number of hours * grade point

Communications : 1 * 4 = 4 points

Accounting: 5 * 2 = 10 points

Math: 2 * 6 = 12 points

Econ: 4 * 2 = 8 points

Marketing: 3 * 1 = 3 points

Computers: 2 * 6 = 12 points

Total acquired: 4 + 10 + 12 + 8 + 3 + 12 = 49 points

Total possible points: hours * highest possible grade = 17 * 6 = 102 points

GPA = 49/102 * 6 = **2.88**

This is the table I am reffering to
