Syllabus clarity

Another funny story heard at lunch. The professor says: “On Monday we’ll have a quiz and it will be 10% of your final grade”. A student gets 9 out of 10 on the quiz and stops coming to class. At the end of the semester she checks her grade in the class and is shocked to find out that the professor gave her an F.
She appeals the grade: “I received a 9 on the quiz, which you said was 10% of my final grade. This means my final grade is 90. How can I possibly be failing the class?”
