**Quidditch**, Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 3:48pmA variable can be a symbol or word used to represent some value. For this problem W could be a variable representing the number of additional games that they must win to have won 75%.

(number won so far) + (addtional won) >= 75% (total games)

substituting...

9 + W >= 0.75 * (20)

Solve for W

total games won = 9+n

(9+n)/20 >/=.75

9+n >/= 15

n>/= 6
