Calculation of the batting average

When the effigy or the calculation of the average to the stick of a baseball player, simply use the following formula:

= (Number of hits) batting average / (number of official at bats)

As you can see, the batting average is just a report of the “number of times where the player hit the ball” on “at bat”.

More this average or more the average is 1, the player hits. Therefore, the above formula is a measure of how well the player hits.

In calculating this average, we tour usually decimal answers to three locations

Example # 1:

A player hits safely 34 times.

the player was at bat 45 times

What is the player batting average?

= (Number of hits) batting average / (number of official at bats)

= (34) Batting average / (45)

0.755555555555 = Batting average

After having doubled to three decimal places, we get 0.755

As you can see here, this is a very good score that have never met any human beings human.

Example # 2:

A player hits safely 15 times.

the player was at bat 30 times

What is the player batting average?

= (Number of hits) batting average / (number of official at bats)

(15) = Batting average / (30)

= 0.5 Batting average

After having doubled to three decimal places, we get 0.500

Example # 3:

A player hits safely 24 times.

The player was at bat 64 times

What is the player batting average?

= (Number of hits) batting average / (number of official at bats)

(24) = Batting average / (64)

= 0.375 Batting average

Here, the answer is already rounded to 3 decimal places.

Ty cobb, one of the greatest at bat, has a record of 0.366

Example # 4:

A player hits safely 10 times.

The player was at bat 26 times

What is the player batting average?
