A 63 point win will get us past them on percentage.
A 62 point win will leave us just short regardless of what Melbourne score.

That is not how maths works.

Ideally next week against the tanking Norf would be the percentage roost round for us, then try and scrape a win against the Tigers.
I'll take two scraping wins and one big win- that's the best we can hope for IMO

Put those cuisenaire sticks away and get a calculator.
OR
(Stk + 1645)/(Me + 1690)>(Me + 1752)/StK +1672)
(StK +1672)x (StK +1645) > (Me +1690) x (Me + 1752)
StK^2 + 3317Stk + 2,750,440 > Me^2 + 3442Me + 2,960,880
Plot a graph y = x^2 +3317x + 2,750,440 and another y = x^2 + 3442x + 2,960,880
Where the first graph is higher than the second then St Kilda has a better percentage
Read off the value for x for the first graph that is St Kilda's score the second graph value for x is Melbourne's score.
That how maths works but Enrico is correct.
OR
You can plug in values for Melbourne score into StK^2 + 3317Stk + 2,750,440 > Me^2 + 3442Me + 2,960,880
And solve the resultant quadratic equation if you like
That how maths works but Enrico is correct.
Trust his calculator.
But please note that would put St Kilda ahead of Melbourne by a game and percentage this weekend.
Lose one more game than Melbourne in the last 2 rounds and most likely Melbourne still ends the season ahead.
We need to get a buffer as well.
100 points win would be best.

Ok. Saints win 163 to 100.
% Saints 101.01 1808/1790 (1645/1690)
% Dees 99.30 1852/1865 (1752/1672)
Ok. Saints win 153 to 100.
% Saints 100.45 1798/1790
% Dees 99.84 1852/1855 So Saints win by 53 and still finish with a % greater than the Dees.

I still think we have to win every game. Especially this one.
