A basketball team has won 50 games of 75 played. The team still has 45 games to play. How many of the remaining games must the team win in order to win 60% of all games played during the season?

Word problems are hard for most students to follow. I got help for this one already.

That simply is not true. People keep saying that, so students grow up with fear. I recommend you get it out of your head, too.

Once you learn to organize your thoughts, many things become more reasonable.

I will practice word problems each day and think positively.
