I think ppl think that Im asking what courses no no no , Im hispanic and never before cared about GPA as far as calculating it, I just do the class and get my grade. What Im asking is how is GPA calculated MATHEMATICALLY.
I do apologize if it wasnt clear before.

What does being Hispanic have to do with it.
So multiply all your grades (4.3 for A+ 3.0 for B etc) by the units that the class is worth (ranges from about 2 to 5). Then divide by 4 times the units the class is worth.

Example. You have 2 grades, A+ for a 3 unit class and B+ for a 4 unit class so ((4.3x3) + (3.3x4)) / (4x3 + 4x4)= somewhere around 3.7

Sorry I am little bit confused.
Why do you divide by (4 times the units)?

Isn't it
((4.33*3) + (3.3*4)) / (4 + 3) to get around 3.7?

am I wrong?
