## Batting Average Calculator

### How to Use the Calculator

To calculate the batting average, enter the total number of hits and the total number of at-bats into their respective fields. The batting average represents the ratio of hits to at-bats. Once you have entered the values, click on the “Calculate” button, and the batting average will be displayed in the Result field.

### How It Calculates Results

The batting average is calculated by dividing the number of hits by the number of at-bats. It is a common statistic used to measure a batter’s performance in baseball, and it’s expressed as a three-digit decimal. If a player gets a hit every time at bat, the average would be 1.000. A batting average of .300 means the player got a hit 30% of the times they were at bat.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes that the input values are whole numbers, as fractional at-bats are not standard. It will not calculate correctly if you input text, symbols, or a number of at-bats that is less than or equal to zero. Batting average can be significantly influenced by a small number of at-bats, which can make it less representative of a player’s ability in the short term.
