In this scenario, we will pretend that you have homework, projects, a midterm, and a final to grade. You would like the weighting to be as follows:
The percentages of all the weighting must add up to 100%.
It is easiest to set up your Gradebook first, and then create or add items to the Gradebook. But don’t worry, if you have already set up your Gradebook items (homework assignments, projects, etc), you can come back and do this setup later and then assign the Gradebook items to the appropriate categories. It is also easy to add categories and even change the weighting of grades at any time.
Note: You may also assign items from other tools, such as Assignments or Tests & Quizzes, to specific categories when you create them.

Now apply the weighting:
If you try this example and don’t get the same results, you might want to go back and double check the following:
