Helping my son with %. I can't remember how. Here is the question. The baseball team has played 35 games so far this season. Of those games, they've won 21. What percent of the games played has the team won?

Can someone help me with the formula

    First, divide 21 by 35.

    21/35 = 0.6

    Then multiply by 100 (or move the decimal point two places to the right).

    0.6 = 60%

    Thank you so much. I thought that was how. Wanted to make sure before I told him wrong. Thanks again for your help. Have a great night!

    You're very welcome! I'm delighted to help a parent who's working with her child on his school work. :-)
