  • algebra -

    A is correct
    B is correct
    C projected wins = 162 * (28/54)

    current percentage * no of games

  • algebra -

    A. Right. 28 wins out of 54 games 28/54=.52 or 52% so 108 games left and 52% of 108 is 56 wins projected plus 28 already won so 84 wins at end of the season.

    B. You are right 28/54 but answer 0.51851 to nearest tenth is 51.9%

    C. Projected wins for the season is 84 and 84 out of 162 or 84/162= 52%
