  • algebra -

    19 games, made 0.38 of 203 shots
    0.38 * 203 = 77.14 shots made

    203 shots/19 games = 10.68 shots/game
    10.68 shots * 8 games left = 85.44 possible shots

    203 shots made + 85 shots yet to make = 288 shots
    288 * 0.45 = 129.6 = 130 shots need to make ttl

    130 ttl shots needed - 77 shots made in first 19 games = 53 need to make in the 8 games left

    53 need to make/85 possible shots = 0.6235 * 100 = 62.35% must make to reach goal of 45%

    77 + 53 = 130 made
    203 + 85 shots = 288
    130/288 = 0.4513 * 100 = 45.13%
