A student receives his grade report from a local community college, but the GPA is smudged. He took the following classes: a 2 hour credit art, a 3 hour credit history, a 4 hour credit science course, a 3 hour credit mathematics course, and a 1 hour science lab. He received a "B" in the art class, an "A" in the history class, a "C" in the science class, a "B" in the mathematics class and an "A" in the science lab. What was his GPA if the letter grades are based on a 4 point scale?
(A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0)

(A) 2.7
(B) 2.8
(C) 3.0
(D) 3.1
(E) 3.2

c) 3.0

(2*3+3*4+4*2+3*3+1*4)/(2+3+4+3+1)
39/13 = 3.0

Is this a trick question, because the science lab does not say it's for credit?

If so, the answer would be:
(2*3)+(3*4)+(4*2)+(3*3)/(2+3+4+3)
=(6+12+6+9)/12
=33/12
=2.75, which rounds to 2.8, or B.

However, if - as I suspect - it's a typo, and the science lab was also for credit, then I get the same answer as Chets.
