You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we'll show how to calculate weighted grade-point averages for a group of students.
- 7For the weighted averages, we want to make sure that these are absolute references. So, we add "$" in front of the letter and the number to make them "$C$1" and "$G$1" in this video. Whenever we fill down, the formula will always refer to the "Weight" row. In this video, "SUMPRODUCT" will basically multiply 75 by 0.1, 35 by 0.1, etc., and then add the product of those numbers. In this case, it will be 7.5+3.5+3.5+etc.
- 8Once we get all of these numbers added up, we want to divide those by the total number of the weights. We'll use "SUM", add a parenthesis, and select the top section, adding in the dollar sign in front of the letters and the numbers to make sure that these are absolute references. We close the formula and press "Enter". In this video, the final grade for Billy Bob will be 58.
- 9We can fill the "Grade" column down. We do it by left-clicking at the bottom of the cell and simply dragging it down to get the final grades for both Suzy Q and Mike Holmes.
