    Smile decimal

    In a weekend baseball tournament, Joel had 4 hits in 13 times at bat.
    That is, he hit safely 4/13 of the time. Write the decimal equivalent for Joel’s hitting, rounding to three decimal places. (That number is Joel’s batting average.)


    my answer is .308 is that right?
