# Get Marks Out of Hundred • ### Question

• a) Lets say we got 55 Marks Out of 100 Marks
b) We got 45 Marks Out of 80 Marks

In Case B, we got 45 Marks out of 80 Marks, I am using the following Code to convert the Marks Obtained Out of Hundred -

`Dim CalculateMarks As Decimal = MarksObtained * 100 / TotalMarks`
What If we get 70 Marks Out of 150 Marks, how can we get the Marks Obtained out of Hundred, Can someone help ?

If I understand correctly...

```        Dim marks As Decimal = 55D
Dim totmarks As Decimal = 100D
Dim percent As Decimal = marks / totmarks
Dim marks100 As Decimal = percent * 100D

marks = 45D
totmarks = 80D
percent = marks / totmarks
marks100 = percent * 100D

marks = 70D
totmarks = 150D
percent = marks / totmarks
marks100 = percent * 100D
```
