Hi, I'm reading moneyball a book about stats and baseball. In the book it says when you consider two batters one with a .275 batting average and one with .300 batting average and you watch them over 15 games there is a 40% chance the .275 batter will get more hits. Could someone explain to me how they are calculating this. Thank you.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
