Our winning percentage calculator can help you accurately calculate a team's winning percentage using input wins, losses, and ties

The formula for calculating the winning percentage without considering ties is:

$\text{Winning Percentage} = \left( \frac{\text{Wins}}{\text{Wins} + \text{Losses}} \right) \times 100$Where:

- Wins = Number of games won
- Losses = Number of games lost
- Total Games = Wins + Losses

**Example Calculation**

- Wins = 10
- Losses = 5

**Total Games:**

**Winning Percentage:**

By providing these detailed explanations, users can understand how the winning percentage is calculated and have confidence in the accuracy of your calculator.

The formula for calculating the winning percentage, considering ties, is:

$\text{Winning Percentage} = \left( \frac{\text{Wins} + (\text{Value of Ties} \times \text{Ties})}{\text{Total Games}} \right) \times 100$Where:

- Wins = Number of games won
- Losses = Number of games lost
- Ties = Number of games tied
- Value of Ties = Value assigned to each tie (default is 0.5)
- Total Games = Wins + Losses + Ties

**Example Calculation**

- Wins = 10
- Losses = 5
- Ties = 3
- Value of Ties = 0.5

**Total Games:**

The value for ties is used to account for the partial contribution of tied games to the overall performance. In many sports, a tie is worth less than a win but more than a loss. By assigning a value (commonly 0.5), we can accurately reflect the team's performance in the winning percentage.

The 'value of ties' parameter assigns a numerical value to each tied game to reflect its contribution to the overall performance. This value is typically set to 0.5, indicating that a tie is worth half a win.

Yes, you can change the default value for ties by specifying a different value when using the calculator. The default value is 0.5, but it can be adjusted based on the rules or preferences for different sports or contexts.
