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?

So if you have won about 15% of the games this season, you can't achieve a 50% win rate....smiley

You've played 75% of the season.  So, you've played   

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

 

You've 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 that 50% winning season, you will need to win   

another 35% 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.  There are not enough games left.    

 

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