    Answer:

    50 bats total

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To solve this problem, all one has to do is, set up a proportion, remember, a proportion is;

    \frac{part}{whole} = \frac{percent}{100}

    In this case;

    \frac{hits}{total.bats} = \frac{percent}{100}

    It is given that;

    percent  – 60%

    hits – 30

    Now substitute in the values and solve;

    \frac{30}{total.bats} = \frac{60}{100}

    Solve, first simplify;

    \frac{30}{total.bats} = \frac{3}{5}

    Now use cross products;

    150 = 3(total_bats)

    Inverse operations;

    150 = 3(total_bats)

    /3      /3

    50 = total_bats
