A baseball player’s “batting average” is the number of hits for every 1000 times the player is at bat. Last season Gary was at bat 248 times, resulting in 93 hits.
What was Gary’s batting average last season?



First calculate 93 as a portion of 248, expressed as a decimal number: 93/248 = 0.375. Express this portion in terms of 1000 by multiplying by 1000. Gary’s batting average was 375.
