Our badminton team has finished $60\%$ of its season. So far, we have won $40\%$ 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?

Let G be the total  number of  games   you  play

Let .60 G be the number of  games  you  have played

Let . 40 (.60)G be the number of  games  you  have won =  .24G

Let .40G be the games  left

Let  .50G = the number of  wins  you  must have

And number of wins you  need - Number of  wins  you  have =  No. of  wins you need in  your remaining  schedule

 

So

 

[ No. of wins you  need - No, of  wins you have  ] / [ No. of Games Left ]

 

[ .50G - .24G ] /  .40G  =

 

(.26 G )  / ( .40G) =  .65    (you need to  win  65%  of your remaining  games )
