A basketball team has won 50 games of 75 played. The team still has 45 games to play. How many of the remaining games must the team win in order to win 60% of all games played during the season?

All Wins / Total Games = Percentage

(50+x) / (75+45) = 60% (--> 0.6)
(50+x)/120 = 0.6 | *120
50+x = 0.6*120 | -50
x = 0.6*120-50
x= 22

So they have to win 22 more games.
