# A football team won 10 matches out of the total number of matches they played. If their win percentage was 40, then how many matches did they play in all?

**Solution:**

Percentage is defined as a given part or amount in every hundred. It is a fraction with 100 as the denominator and is represented by the symbol "%".

Assuming the total number of matches played as x, equating 40% of x to 10, the value of x can be found

Let the total number of matches played = x

Thus, 40% of x = 10

⇒ (40/100) × x = 10

⇒ x = (10 × 100)/40

⇒ x = 25

Hence, the total number of matches played = 25
