Let x be the number of games he won yesterday.......and let N be the total number of games that he played yesterday.....so....

 

x / N  = .85       ⇒      x = .85N     (1)

 

And let y be the number of games  he (played= won ) today....so...... 

 

total games won                           x + y

_________________  =             ______   =   .94      (2)

 total games played                     N + y

 

Sub (1) into (2)   and we have that

 

.85N + y

_______  = .94         multiply both sides by  N + y

   N + y

 

 

.85N + y   = .94(N + y)

.85N + y  = .94N + .94y

.06y = .09N

6y  = 9N

y = (9/6)N

y = (3/2)N  = 1.5N

But x  = .85N =  (17/20)N

So  N must be 20  for x to be an integer

And y  = 1.5N =   1.5(20) = 30

 

So....the minimum number of games he played today  =  30
