Question:

A baseball\u00A0team has won 60 of the 80 games it has played. The team still has 40 games to play. How many of the remaining games must the team win in order to win 80% of all games played throughout the season?

A 36
Explaination

The team has played 80 games and will play 40 more games. 80 + 40 = 120 80% of 120 = 0.8 x 120 = 96. The team must win 96 games, and it has already won 60 games. Therefore, the team must win 96 - 60 = 36 more games.
