If i add in 20 red marbles, 60% of my marbles are yellow.

Not sure either where the concept applies. But there is a great website I found that provides an interactive penalty shootout math games for kids in grade 6 and 7 and you should try it out. http://algebra4kids.com/algebra-games-collection.html
