Project 15.1

This problem is a continuation of Problem 60, Section 15.2. A player’s batting average really isn’t simply the ratio h/a . It is the value of h/a rounded to the nearest thousandth. It is possible that a batting average could be raised or lowered, but the reported batting average might remain the same when rounded. Write a paper on this topic.
