Walks are not counted in figuring out Batting Averages. It's basically like you didn't take an at- bat for walks.
Like you do any batting average. Total trips to the plate minus walks and sacrifices divided by hits
Walks count as an official plate appearance and are used in determining whether a player has met the minimum number of plate appearances needed to be eligible to win the batting title but are not used in calculating a player's batting average.
Yes, but they don't affect your batting average.
Number of base hits divided by number of times at bat, not counting any walks.

For batters that had at least 20 plate appearances against Palmer, that was Al Oliver who went 11 for 23 for a .478 batting average. For batters that had at least 50 plate appearances against Palmer, that was Doug Griffin who went 17 for 47 with 6 walks for a .362 batting average. For batters that had at least 100 plate appearances against Palmer, that was Rod Carew who when 34 for 95 with 10 walks for a .358 batting average.
Batting average in softball is the number of hits divided by the number of at bats. Walks are not calculated as at bats or hits, as well as hit by pitches. A reached on error counts as an at bat, but does not count as a hit.
The highest batting average a player can have is 1.000, which would mean that he would have a hit every time he is at bat. Of course, this wouldn't count the times the batter may have been walked, since walks aren't considered "at-bats" and don't reflect upon his batting average.
No, walks do not factor. They don't count as At Bats and therefore don't affect the batting average. For example: a player is at the plate 4 times; he gets walked twice and has one hit. The two walks don't count as At Bats. He therefore has 1 Hit in 2 AB which, of course, is a .500 BA.
If a batter walks or gets hit by a pitch, the at-bat counts as a plate appearance so that the player doesn't lose points on their batting average.
WHP, also referred to as a pitcher's "WHIP" is the total number of walks and hits allowed per inning pitched. Similar to calculating opponents batting average, but also takes into account walks. Hits allowed plus walks allowed divided by innings pitched.
To calculate batting average you need to find out how many at bats the player had. This is plate appearances minus walks minus hit by pitches much sacrifice bunts and flys. Then you need to find out how many of those at bats resulted in hits. Take the number of hits and divide it by the number of at bats. This will give you batting average.
