Question #19163

Hi, I would like to work out a maths problem, but unfortunately I am appalling at maths. It's not really that difficult but I would like to work it out anyway.

OK, I did a recent Physics Exam and I know that my mark in it is directly proportional to a type of marking code called UMS (Uniform Mark Scale).

I know that I got 47/60 in the exam and that this converts to 93 UMS out of a possible 100 UMS. In a piece of coursework parallel to this exam it is marked out of 50, not out of 60. However, the coursework is still worth 100 UMS which obviously means that each mark is worth more UMS in the coursework compared to the exam.

What I am trying to find out is how much UMS each mark in the coursework is worth, and I have absolutely no idea how to do this, even though it is probably really easy and simple :(
