    Passing Percentage?

    When two football teams play, can one of the quarterbacks have a higher passing percentage in each half while having a lower passing percentage for the entire game?

    Only in theory; the "game %" is all that counts in the books.

    One would think no.

    First Half
    QB-A -1 for 10 = 10% completion percentage
    QB-2 - 0 for 0 = 0% completion percentage

    QB-A has a higher percentage in the 1st Half

    Second Half
    QB-A - 9 for 10 = 90% completion percentage
    QB-B - 8 for 10 = 80% completion percentage

    QB-A has a higher percentage in the 2nd Half

    Game
    QB-A - 10 for 20 = 50% completion percentage
    QB-B - 8 for 10 = 80% completion percentage

    QB-B has a higher percentage for the game.

    23 odds and ends on a table; 22 fall off.

    Odd, or end?

    I was told there would be no math.

    I think I can answer this. I just need a TI-83 and a bottle of Makers.
