    Apologies for my ignorance, but why the multiplication by 9?

    Nine innings in a game I think is the reason. Earned Run Average(ERA) is what is being looked at. Low “ERA” means that you have a good pitcher with few runs being scored against them.

    @Juice- Bruce

    Then there’s Charlie Brown. A four figure ERA and now his stomach hurts again.

    Use new math.

    I think it’s much higher than that. Perhaps double or tripple that.

    Was it a fraction?

    I say triple digit ERA.

    Is Charlie Brown trying to divide by zero? You know you can not do that. Bad things happen if you do.

    @David Henderson

    He was dividing by the number of innings pitched. He pitches every inning of every game.

    @Robert Nowall

    You can’t take three from two,
    Two is less than three,
    So you look at the four in the tens place.
    Now that’s really four tens,
    So you make it three tens,
    Regroup, and you change a ten to ten ones,
    And you add them to the two and get twelve,
    And you take away three, that’s nine.
    Is that clear?

    Now instead of four in the tens place
    You’ve got three,
    ‘Cause you added one,
    That is to say, ten, to the two,
    But you can’t take seven from three,
    So you look in the hundreds place.

    From the three you then use one
    To make ten ones…
    (And you know why four plus minus one
    Plus ten is fourteen minus one?
    ’Cause addition is commutative, right.)
    And so you have thirteen tens,
    And you take away seven,
    And that leaves five…

    Well, six actually.
    But the idea is the important thing.

    Now go back to the hundreds place,
    And you’re left with two.
    And you take away one from two,
    And that leaves…?

    Everybody get one?
    Not bad for the first day!

    Hooray for new math,
    New-hoo-hoo-math,
    It won’t do you a bit of good to review math.
    It’s so simple,
    So very simple,
    That only a child can do it!
    Now that actually is not the answer that I had in mind, because the book that I
    got this problem out of wants you to do it in base eight. But don’t panic. Base
    eight is just like base ten really – if you’re missing two fingers.

    Charlie Brown’s team desperately needs a relief pitcher.
