I am currently writing a program in HTML/JavaScript and have been fighting it for several days with hours of research and studying without resolution. My program/site has a table that asks the user to enter their grades for 4 different categories. Then upon clicking the button to calculate the average it is supposed to take those 4 values, and then average them with the correct weighting, and then display the output in a new page division. I am not able to get the output to display and I can’t figure out why.

I apologize if this is dead simple and has been answered before.

function calculator() {
  var grade1 = parseFloat(document.getElementById('homework').value * 0.25);
  var grade2 = parseFloat(document.getElementById('labs').value * 0.20);
  var grade3 = parseFloat(document.getElementById('midterm').value * 0.25);
  var grade4 = parseFloat(document.getElementById('finals').value * 0.30);
  var total = grade1 + grade2 + grade3 + grade4;

  var display = document.getElementById('outputDiv') display.innerHTML = 'Your Final Grade Is: ';
}

I updated your code to work. The issue being you never displayed the total, you just displayed

‘Your final Grade Is:’

<head>
