if I'm getting 100% in the class, and get a 50% on my quiz, what does that average my grade to?

I have an A, and I got 21 out of 42 on a test. I'm scared I might fail, or get below a D or C, and I'm not really sure how to calculate it. Please help!

The relative worth of the class and the test must be known.

We need to know how much the quiz rates in
comparisom to your other grades.  Is this quiz
one of several grades that all count the same 
towards your grade?
Example:  If you had a 4 quizzes and got 100% on
each, then got 50% on the 5th quiz then:
(400+50)/5 = 450/5 = 90% average

Grades are Weighted.
