Win-lose-tie percentages are predominant statistics that lots of athletes, sports enthusiasts, and sports analysts use to determine how well a sports team is competing. High win percentages and low loss percentages represent success while low win percentages and high loss percentages show failure.

Understand the meaning of a percentage. To say something occurs a certain percentage of the time means that it will occur that many times for every one hundred chances. For example, if an athlete has a 75 percent win rate, he will win 75 out of every 100 matches he plays.

Find the total number of competitions participated in by adding the number of wins, losses and ties together.

Divide the number of wins by the total number of competitions. Then multiply the quotient by 100 to calculate the win percentage.

Divide the number of losses by the total number of competitions. Then multiply the quotient by 100 to calculate the loss percentage.

Divide the number of ties by the total number of competitions. Then multiply the quotient by 100 to calculate the tie percentage.
