In many universities students are given grade points for each credit unit according to the following scale:A 4pointsB 3pointsC 2points$D \quad 1$ point$F \quad 0$ pointFor example, a grade of A in a 3 -unit course earns $4 \times 3=12$ grade points and a grade of $\mathrm{B}$ in a 5-unit course earns 3 $\times 5=15$ grade points. A student's grade point average (GPA) for these two courses is the total number of grade points earned divided by the number of units; in this case the GPA is $(12+15) / 8=3.375$a. Find a formula for the GPA of a student who earns a grade of A in $a$ units of course work, $\mathrm{B}$ in$b$ units, $\mathrm{C}$ in $c$ units, $\mathrm{D}$ in $d$ units, and $\mathrm{F}$ in $f$ units.b. Find the GPA of a student who has earned a grade of A in two 3 -unit courses, $\mathrm{B}$ in one 4 -unit course, and C in three 3-unit courses.

(a) $\mathrm{GPA}=(4 a+3 b+2 c+d) /(a+b+c+d+f)$(b) 2.84

So I understand now available unless during this course in and it is a grading system, some examples are given and on the basis of that, find the formula for GP G p A. But just I'll give in that who are a great A in a So a mince poured in. A only bless be in BU in it, so be minced. Three points. Bless C in C unit. So Siemens two points in si unit Onda de in de on it So demons one b an African F unit. So it means Jiro in appearance upon Total UNIX a plus B plus C plus D plus. So finally, this is for a plus three b Blessed to see bless you see plus de upon a plus B plus C plus D plus f. So this way the first person no see second be part Now we had to find the GP evidence. Who is our great A in three Rex. So they're getting a port in tow. A three units pour into three units, so four into three Bless be in 40 years of vehemence. Three in four units Bless see in three on Siemens points in three units upon total amount of units 34 and three resistant. So, solving this, uh well, plus well, bless six up on then. So this is a party are born, then, which is equality Today GP.
