      Description

      Functional Description: Change the way that equally weighted items in a category are calculated so that they represent a true calculated average and avoid possible repeating fractions.

      Setup:

      Gradebook2 [Points, Weighted Categories]
      Category HW [Weight items equally]
      Grade Items [HW1, HW2, ..., HW6]

      Equal weight will assign an item weight of 1/6, which is a repeating fraction.

      Assign points 8.9995 to one grade item

      The course grade will be "B+ (89.99%)" instead of "A- (90.00%)"
