yea

- JoannaBlackwelder

algebra

- JoannaBlackwelder

Haha, I mean in the equation I gave earlier.

- trwatkins1

oh

- JoannaBlackwelder

If number of tied games is 0, then

- trwatkins1

# of games won and lost

- JoannaBlackwelder

Right, the equation becomes
Total games = number of games won + number of games lost

- trwatkins1

well if we subtract the games one from the total it will give is num of games lost
