Our badminton team has finished 75% of its season.  So far, we have won 20% 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?

You have won 20% of 75% of the total number of games

in the season.  That means you've won 15% of the total

number of games in the season.

To achieve a 50% winning season, you will need to win

another 35% of the total number of games in the season.

However, there are only 25% of the total number of games

in the season left to play.  There aren't enough games left.

Sorry, but you can not achieve a 50% winning season.

Yeah why don't you get better rackets. Birdies are important too.
