**In a history class, Patrick has earned a C with 78% of the 350 points the teacher has graded over the semester.**

If the teacher offers one more assignment that is worth 40 points before final grades are posted, can Patrick still earn an 80% and get a B if he receives a perfect score on the additional assignment?

Explain.

**Answer**

Yes.

Before the extra assignment, he had a total of 273 points out of 350.

With the added assignment, he then had 313 points out of 390.

That percentage is now 80.3%.
