# Batting Average

A baseball player’s batting average is determined by dividing the total number of hits by the total number of official at bats (total number of at bats not including walks). The average is always rounded to the nearest thousandth.

- So far this season, you have been at bat 21 times and have gotten 6 hits. What is your batting average so far?
- Suppose you have 32 more times at bat this season. How many hits will you need in order to reach a batting average of more than 0.300 by the end of the season?
