  1. right now:
    Morris --> 40/149 = .268456 = .268
    Kim------> 37/141 = .262411 = .262


    for Kim make a grid with extra hits on top and extra at-bats on the side

    ........extra hits......
    .....0......1......2......3....4
    0..37/141
    1..37/142 38/142
    2..37/143 38/143 39/143
    3..37/144 38/144 39/144 40/144
    4..37/145 38/145 39/145 40/145 41/145

    notice that 38/142 = .2676 or .268

    since US baseball averages are given in 3 digits, at least that is my guess, we could conclude that Morris gets no more hits at no more at bats, and Kim gets 1 more hit at one more at bat

    You could make a similar chart for Morris and I am sure there are other percentages which become equal to 3 digits.
