After winning 50 percent of the first 20 games it played, Team A won all of the remaining games it played. What was the total number fo games that Team A won?

1) Team A played 25 games altogether.

Data Suff.

I cannot figure out the answer, please help.

Both are sufficient.

From 1. We can find that they won 15 games.

For 2. I just plugged in numbers... 11/21... 12/22... 13/23...14/24...15/25 and bingo... thats 60%.

St1:
Team A won it's last 5 remaining games. It also won the 10 out of the first 20 games. So Total number of games won = 15. Sufficient.

St2:
If team A played x games, then 0.6x = 10 + (x-20). Solve for x and you can find out how many games Team A won. Sufficient.
