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?

Call the total number of games to be played  = T

We have played  .60T

We have  .40T  left to play

We have won  .40 (.60)T =  .24T

We need to win .50T

 

So

 

[  Games  we need to win - Games we have won ] / [ Games to be played ]   =  %we need to win

 

[ .50T  - .24T ] / .40T  =

 

.26 / .40   = 

 

13 / 20  = 

 

65%  of  our  remaining games
