Our basketball team has finished 80% of its season, during which we won 48% 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?

Number of games in a season is x

Number of games you have played is 0.8x, so you have (1-0.8)x=(0.2)x

You have won (0.48)(0.8)x=0.384x. 

You must hae 0.5x wins, since you want the same number of wins and losses. So, you have to have 0.5-0.384=0.116x

(0.116x)/(0.2x)=0.58

58%
