When the effigy or calculating average of runner of a baseball player, simply use the following formula:

Average Runner = (number of stolen bases) / (number of interceptions attempts)

Generally, when a player on a base, they try to steal the next base to maximize results

There is a risk in trying to steal more bases, but it adds to the excitement of the game.

If a player is not managed to steal a base, the player is usually scalped or retired

The most high average, better the player is to steal bases.

Therefore, the above formula is a measure of how well the player stealing bases.

In calculating this average, we usually show the answer as a percent

To convert a decimal number as a percentage, follow the steps below:

**Step # 1:**

Multiply by 100

**Step # 2:**

Put next to the percentage sign (%) to the number you obtained after multiplied by 100

**Example # 1:**

A match of baseball, a player had the following performance:

14 interceptions

28 putouts

Average Runner = (number of stolen bases) / (number of interceptions attempts)

Number of stolen bases = 14

number of attempts interceptions = number of stolen bases + putouts = 14 + 28 = 42

Average = (14) / (42)

Average = 1/3 after simplification (divide 14 by 14 and 42 by 14)

Average = 0.333333

The answer is a decimal number right now, so multiply by 100 to convert the response per cent.

0.3333 × 100 = 33.33

After placing the percentage sign close to 33.33, the answer is 33.33 %

33.33% means that for each 100 bases that the player is attempting to steal, he will fly with success of 33.33

In other words, 1 of every 3 bases is stolen

**Example # 2:**

A match of baseball, a player had the following performance:

30 interceptions

10 putouts

Average = (number of stolen bases) / (number of interceptions attempts)

Average = (30) / (40)

Average = 3/4 after simplification (divide 30 by 10 and 40 by 10)

Average = 0.75

The answer is a decimal number right now, so multiply by 100 to convert the response per cent.

0.75 × 100 = 75

After placing the percentage sign near 75, the answer is 75 %

75% means that, for each 100 bases that the Player tries to fly, will it steal 75 successfully

In other words, 3 of every 4 bases are stolen

**Example # 3:**

A match of baseball, a player had the following performance:

42 interceptions

28 putouts

Average = (number of stolen bases) / (number of interceptions attempts)

Average = (42) / (70)

Average = 3/5 after simplification (divide by 14 and 70 by 14 42)

Average = 0.6

The answer is a decimal number right now, so multiply by 100 to convert the response per cent.

0.60 × 100 = 60

After placing the percentage sign about 60, the answer is 60 %

60% means that for each 100 bases that the player is attempting to steal, he will fly with success of 60

In other words, each 5 bases 3 are stolen
