Simple equation needed for baseball batting average.

I've come up to bat 100 times and got 35 hits for a .350 batting average. I want to improve my batting average to .400. What's the equation that takes into account each additional at-bat's impact?

Does it mean that in order to at least get .4 average you have to bat min of 115 times (40/.35) ? I don't know baseball, but to me, it looks like a problem that involves series (power/multi/add - I don't know the rules. I guess it involves calculating your next result based on the previous).
