# How to average three tests?

Registered User Posts: 9 New Member
My professor will average the three tests to get the term average which counts 60%. I got 68 for the first two tests, then a 60 on the third test (their bad, I know, but its a long explanation). So how do I get the average? What formula do you use?

Assuming the three tests are weighted equally it is 68+68+60=196. 196/3=65.3.
