Helping my son with %. I can't remember how. Here is the question. The baseball team has played 35 games so far this season. Of those games, they've won 21. What percent of the games played has the team won?

Can someone help me with the formula

  1. First, divide 21 by 35.

    21/35 = 0.6

    Then multiply by 100 (or move the decimal point two places to the right).

    0.6 = 60%
