    a=\dfrac{h}{n}\\\\a=0.304,\ n=368\\\\\text{substitute}\\\\\dfrac{h}{368}=0.304\qquad\text{multiply both sides by 368}\\\\h=111.872\approx112\\\\Answer:\ \boxed{112\ hits}

    a = average
    h = number of hits
    n = number of times at bat

    a = h / n
    0.304 = h / 368
    368 * 0.304 = h
    111.87 = h

    The number of hits the baseball player made is 112.
