let 40% = .40; let 60% = .60; let g = the number of games they play in a season.

So: .40(g) + 10 = .60(g) + 5

Solve for g

If they won 40%, then presumably they lost 60%

The win side of the equation is on the left and the lose side of the equation is on the right.

If they close the season at 50% and 50%, then the wins and loses are equal.

Do you understand?
