Why we are writing 3.2*10 ?

Dilepkumar said:   1 decade ago
They asking only remainig 40 over run rate. So why use of first 10 over?

How do we arrive at the solution.? What is the logic?

Pratik Mehta said:   1 decade ago
@Kavita : Run rate * overs = runs scored.

So now Run rate = Runs scored/required / overs.

There 282 - (3.2 x 10) = Runs required

Remaining overs are 40.

Why do we minus 282-(3.2*10)...?

Muhundhan said:   1 decade ago
So we calculate the runs in the first 10 overs
first 10 overs they got 32 runs
remaining 40 overs they got 250
250 / 40 =6.25

Thanks muhundhan thats great.

Why are you minus that 282 runs?

Tarun said:   1 decade ago
282 are not minus,here ((3.2(current run rate)*10(overs))=32runs)
are subtracted from total required runs,so 282-32=250 are the runs required in other 40 overs,
so required run rate=
250/40=6.25 runs per over.
