Best Answer

X = ((75 + 45) * .60) - 50 X = (120 * .60) - 50 X = 72 - 50 X = 22 The team must win 22 of the remaining 45 games to wind up the season with a 60 percent winning percentage.
The team needs to win only 10 games of the remaining 45 games since it has already won 50 out of the 60 required during the season.

If the team will play 120 games, it must win 72 games (.6 x 1200) to win 60 percent of all games played during the season. Since it has already won 50 games, it only needs to win 22 of the remaining 45 games.
