1 Answer

  • Answer:

    • Raul has greatest batting average.
    • Jaden has least batting average.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Convert all the batting averages to a single unit so that comparison is easier.

    Use percentages.

    Jaden batting average:

    = 0.214 = 214/1,000 = 21.4%

    Raul = 24.3%

    Abraham:

    = 2 / 9 * 100%

    = 22.2%

    Mark = 22%

    Raul has the greatest batting average.

    Jaden has the least batting average.
