(number of wins) / (total number of games) = winning percentage. It is typically represented by three decimal places.

For example, if a team is 8-3, they have 8 wins in 11 (8+3) games. 8 / 11 = .727

If a pitcher goes 8-4, meaning 8 wins, 4 losses, add the two together which would be 12, and divide the wins, in this case 8 by the total games he had a decision, 12, and the answer would be represented as .666.

In order to find a teams percentage of wins, you must divide the number of games won from the number of games played.

EX.

Games played: 5

Games Won: 3

3 divided by 5 = .6

WIN PERCENTAGE: 60%
