Accepted Solution

Answer:Grade Point Average = 2.21Step-by-step explanation:GPA (Grade Point Average) would be:multiplying the individual point with respective credit hours and SUMMING THEMThendividing all of them by the total number of credit hoursHence,5(1) + 3(3) + 1(2) +5(3) = 5 + 9 + 2 + 15 = 31  [note: the numbers in parenthesis is the points and outside the parenthesis is the credit-hours]Nowtotal credit hours is 5 + 3 + 1 + 5 = 14GPA = 31/14 = 2.21
