  • math -

    75 + 45 = 120

    0.6 * 120 = 72

    72 - 45 = ?

    you just do 72 - 45 =27? but what if that isn't an option like i was only left with these

    20
    21
    22
    25
    30

  • math -

    50/75 games won= 25/75 games lost
    45 more games. so to find the overall games played, add 75 and 45 to get 120.
    60% of 120 is 72= games in total that they have to win
    72-50= 22
