What grade will I need to maintain an A in the class?

In my chemistry class I have a 93%. Our semester final is worth 200 points. Exams are usually worth 55% of the overall grade. How many points will I need to get on the final in order to maintain an A in the class? Whats the conversion to percentage? Thanks!

    If I understand correctly, the final is 45% of your grade (which is steep!). Take 93(.55) + n(.45) = 89.5 so that n=85.222. Then you need 2*85.2222 = 170.444 points out of 200 to have an overall average of 89.5 which rounds to 90. I am assuming ofcourse that A is 90 -100 in your class.
