Hint: percentage of a number is out of $100$ so when we remove the percentage sign then we divide it by $100$

Complete step-by-step answer:
Given data:
Total game played by a soccer team is $160$
They won $65\% $ their total games
Let they won $x$ matches
They played total $160$matches and won $65\% $ it so
$x = 65\% of160$
On solving this by removing percentage sign
$
  x = 65/100*160 \\
  x = 104 \\
$
So they won a total $104$ matches out of $160$ matches

So, the correct answer is “Option B”.

Note: If we have to convert any fraction to percentage then we have to multiply it by$100$. Percentage is always calculated out of $100$.
According to \[BODMAS\] rule of means, numbers should be multiplied.
