**Formula:**`SR = (Hits / At Bats) × 100`

## Introduction to Strike Rate in Baseball Calculator

The strike rate in baseball is a statistical measure used to evaluate a player's effectiveness in hitting the ball when at bat. It is calculated by dividing the number of hits by the number of at bats and then multiplying the result by 100 to get a percentage. The strike rate gives an indication of how often a batter hits the ball successfully when they are at bat.

## Parameter usage:

`hits`

= Number of successful hits by the player`atBats`

= Number of times the player was at bat

## Example valid values:

`hits`

= 78`atBats`

= 312

## Output:

`strikeRate`

= Percentage representing the player's hitting efficiency

## Data validation

`atBats`

must be greater than 0 to calculate a valid strike rate. If `atBats`

equals 0, the calculator will return an error message indicating that at bats must be greater than 0.
