Batting Averages! Solving a Multistep Problem In baseball the batting average of a player is determined by dividing the number of times a player gets a hit by number of times the player is up to bat. 1. How many times has the player been up to bat? 2. How many hits does the player have (include all singles, doubles, triples, and homeruns). 3. Divide the number of hits by the number of at-bats. (the number will be a decimal) 4. Multiply this number by 1000 and that's the batting average.
