Our badminton team has finished 75% of its season.  So far, we have won 10% 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've played 75% of the season.  So, you've played   

75% of the total number of games in the whole season.   

 

You have won 10% of 75% of the total number of games    

in the season.  That means you've won 7.5% of the total    

number of games in the season.  

 

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

another 42.5% of the total number of games in the season.  

 

However, since there's only 25% of the season left, then   

there are only 25% of the total number of games in the  

season left to play.  You don't have enough games left.    

 

It's impossible to achieve a 50% winning season.
