Good morning everyone!

If somone had a 66.5% as their overall grade, and a final is worth 10%, is it possible for that 66.5% to raise up to a 70%?

To see if it is possible, we can just say you aced your final, 100% and see if it exceeds 66.5%.

$${0.665\cdot0.9+1\cdot0.1}=0.6985$$

You will get a final grade of 69.85% even if you aced your final.

It depends what your teacher rounds up by.

If he/she rounds up by whole number, you will get 70%.

If he/she rounds up by tenth, you will get 69.9%, oof.

If she doesn't round, you will get 69.85%.

I hope this helped,

Gavin
