Calculating Winning Percentage in Excel

Calculating winning percentage in Excel is actually quite simple. You just need to divide the number of wins by the total number of games played (wins + losses).

Here's the formula you can use:

Formula:
``` = A1 / (A1 + B1)  ```
Assuming your wins are in cell A1 and losses are in cell B1, you can enter this formula in another cell (let's say C1) and it will give you the winning percentage.

For your example, the formula would be:

Formula:
``` = 10 / (10 + 4)  ```
This would give you a winning percentage of 0.714 or 71.4%.
1. Divide the number of wins by the total number of games played (wins + losses).
2. Use the formula:
Formula:
``` = A1 / (A1 + B1)  ```
3. Enter the formula in another cell (let's say C1) to get the winning percentage.
4. For example, use the formula
Formula:
``` = 10 / (10 + 4)  ```
to get a winning percentage of 0.714 or 71.4%.

Calculating Winning Percentages

Assume Cell A1 = 10 (number of Wins)
Assume Cell B1 = 4 (number of Losses
in Cell C1 type everything between these quotes ... "=A1/(A1+B1)"
then format C1 as a percentage using the % toolbar at the top.

This will give you the percentage of wins of total trials.

Good luck
