17 W + 3 L = 20 games
2/3 of 20 games = 30 games total

in order for the team to win at least 3/4 of the games:
3/4 * 30 = 22.5 cant have half a game so 23 to have at least 3/4
currently they have won 17 so they need 6 more wins to have 23 wins
since they have 10 games remaining, the team can only lose 4 more games.

not completely; he/she has to confirm yet.
total = 20 x 3/2 = 30
3/4 of total = 3/4 x 30 = 22.5 or 23 games.
total games remaining = 10
total games nedded to make 23 wins = 6
so the maximum number of games he/she can loose = 10 - 6 = 4

gotta D.
