I'm wondering if there is something wrong with how an Average column is calculated in Blackboard Learn.
From Blackboards website they give the following example
Three values: 8/10, 3/5, 2/2
Percentage equivalents: 80.0000%, 60.0000%, 100.0000%
Total of the values: 240.0000
Number of items: 3
Total value divided by number of columns: 240.0000/3 = 80.00%
When I use the values in Blackboard I actually get the following results.
Anyone know why it would come up with 79.99989% instead of 80%
Also when looking at the AVG points for the assignment it shows 4.53 points but if I multiply that by 3. I get 13.59 instead of 13.
Is there something wrong with the formula in Blackboard or am I just not grasping how the Average should be calculated.
