Statistics. The following table gives the free throws attempted (FTA) and the free
throws made (FTM) for the top five players in the NBA for a recent season. Calculate
the free throw percentage for each player by writing the FTM over the FTA
and converting this fraction to a decimal.
Player FTM FTA
Allan Houston 363 395
Ray Allen 316 345
Steve Nash 308 339
Troy Hudson 208 231
Reggie Miller 207 230

What part of this are you having trouble with?
For Allan Houston, FTM=363, FTA=395, so 363/395 = .9190
Converting to a percent= 91.90%
