Our badminton team has finished 75% of its season. So far, we have won 35% 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 the total number of games to be played = N

To have the same  number of wins as losses you need.50N wins

So far....you have played .75N

Number you have remaining = .25N

So far....you have won  .35 * .75N    = .2625N

So....the number of  remaining games  you must win to have the same number of wins as losses is .50N - .26.25N = .2375N

 

So

 

Number of  remaining wins you need  / Number of games left  =

 

.2375N / .25N  = 

 

.2375 / .25  = 

 

.95  = 

 

95% of your remaining games
