Our badminton team has finished 75% of its season, during which we won 30% of the games we played. What percent of the remainder of our games must we win in order to finish the season with the same number of wins as losses?

For the heck of  it......let's let the total number of games played =  100

 

So    100 * 30%  =    30 games won

 

So......we  have played   100 * 75%  =  75

 

So....we have   25 left to play

 

We need   20  more wins to  get  to  50       (this will give us 50 wins - 50 losses )

 

So

 

20 wins  / 25 left  =     4  / 5   =  80%  =  pct. games left that we need to win

 

 

cool cool cool
