To figure out if the optional final exam will help you, calculate how many points you need to get up to the next grade.  Each percentage point = 8 regular points.  For example, if you have 85%, you need at least 4 percentage points.  4 times 8 = 32 regular points.
This means that you need to get a grade on the final that is 32 points higher than your lowest exam grade.
