I have a math word problem. Matt played 72 baseball games last summer. His team won 58 games. What percent of the games did they win?

I need the answer fast. Homework blah!

To calculate a percentage you need to divide one number by the other and multiply the result by 100.
58 divided by 72 = 0.80555 and this converts into 80.56%

But you should also try to do it for yourself, i'm not a math genius. lol

Hi Claire, I got your comments about paper dolls, I said over there that you are the perfect friend for me! When I was a kid, for some reason there were a lot of dirt yards, and we would "sweep" the dirt and pile up the dirt into edges that outlined our house plans on the ground! Same as you almost! And do you have Madam Alexander dolls? Oh, I'll bet you have those small sized around the world dolls. My favs was the one from Spain, and the one from Holland, do you have them?
