### Math in sports:

Math in sports By: Alex Diaz Magill Bauerle

### Batting average:

Batting average The formula is X=H/T X= batting average. H= Hits. T= Times at bat.

### Examples:

Examples A player bats 30 times Out of those thirty tries he gets 15 hits Whats the players batting average? Batting average = (Number of hits/Number of tries at the plate) Batting average=0.5 After rounding it the batting average is 0.500 or .500

### Football:

Football Math is also used in football. A football field is 100 yards long, and is marked every 10 yards by a line. The 50 yard line is at the center of the field. It divides one teams side from each other. To calculate the distance across the field, you calculate the length on both sides of the 50 yard line.

### For example :

For example If a football was kicked from Georgia’s 20 yard line to Alabama’s 5 yard line, how far was the kick? The answer is: 75 yards!

### Shooting Percentage:

Shooting Percentage A player's shooting percentage is figured out simply by dividing the number of shots made by the number of shots taken. For example, if a player made 9 shots and took 15 then the player would have a shooting percentage of 60%. This formula is also used for free throws and 3 pointers.
