Q: A: ### Quick Answer

In general, a "C" grade tends to be equivalent to a percentage somewhere in the 70s. There is not one set standard, so it varies among schools. Each institution determines its own grading policies.

Know MoreFor example, at the University of Washington in Seattle, a "C" runs from 75 percent to 79 percent. An 80 is considered a "C" to "C+." At the other end of the scale, 73 or 74 percent is a "C-," while a 72 is a "C" to "D+." Other schools have slightly lower percentages for a "C." At the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, a "C" is 73 to 76 percent. A "C-" covers 70 to 72, while anything in the high 70s equals a "C+."

## What would your grade be if you got four questions wrong out of 20?

A:

Full Answer >**Since getting four questions wrong out of 20 means getting 80 percent correct, it corresponds to a B letter grade in most cases.**However, depending on the grading scale and whether curved grading is employed, the letter grade can vary.Filed Under: - Q:
## What is percent elongation?

A:

Full Answer >**Percent elongation quantifies the ability of an element or compound to stretch up to its breaking point.**It is measured by dividing the change in length (up to the breaking point) by the original length, then multiplying by 100. Materials with a higher percentage elongation can stretch more before breaking.Filed Under: - Q:
## What is 25 percent of 100?

A:The product of 25 percent of 100 is 25. The best way to calculate percentages is to use what mathematicians call a proportion, which states that two ratios are equal to each other. All percentages can be converted into ratios using fractions in the following way: x % = x/100.

## What is 30 percent of $60?

A:

Full Answer >**Thirty percent of $60 is $18.**The mathematical equation used to solve this problem is: 0.30 x $60 = N. An alternative method is to multiply 30 by $60 and then divide the answer by 100. Thus, 30 x $60 = $1,800, and $1,800 / 100 = $18.Filed Under:
