# GPA Calculator

A GPA (Grade Point Average) calculator is a tool used to determine a student’s average grade based on a scale of 0 to 4.0. Here are the steps to calculate GPA:

1. Determine the point value of each letter grade. Typically, A = 4.0, B = 3.0, C = 2.0, D = 1.0, and F = 0.0. However, some schools use different point systems, so be sure to check with your institution to confirm their grading scale.
2. Determine the credit value of each course. This is usually the number of credit hours assigned to the course.
3. Multiply the point value of each letter grade by the credit value of the course.
4. Add up the total number of points earned for all courses.
5. Add up the total number of credit hours for all courses.
6. Divide the total number of points by the total number of credit hours to get your GPA.

For example, if you earned an A (4.0 points) in a 3-credit course, a B (3.0 points) in a 4-credit course, and a C (2.0 points) in a 2-credit course, the calculation would be as follows:

(4.0 x 3) + (3.0 x 4) + (2.0 x 2) = 12 + 12 + 4 = 28

3 + 4 + 2 = 9

GPA = 28 ÷ 9 = 3.11 (rounded to two decimal places)
