How to weigh percentage versus quantity?

```So I have a leader board I'm trying to develop and I've run into a bit of a problem...
It's a roulette game and I want to show who was the best stats.
Lets look at the following examples for scores:
21 wins, 15 losses
40 wins, 1 loss
40 wins, 10 losses
10 wins, 0 losses
1 win, 0 losses
In my mind the leader board should be like so:
#1 40 wins, 1 loss
#2 10 wins, 0 losses
#3 1 win, 0 losses
#4 40 wins, 10 losses
#5 21 wins, 15 losses
Originally I was going with just percentage but that means 1 win 0 losses beats 40 wins and 1 loss which doesn't make sense to me. I'm trying to find a way to weight quantity vs percentage.
I was originally thinking:
%*total = score
but that didn't give me a reasonable result, then I tried:
(%)^2*total = score
but again failure...
I know there must be a formula for this somewhere!!!
Help plz.

```Interesting question. I'd suggest that you create an index which defined as:
Index = (Total wins) - Weight * (total losses).
With the example you gave, if you set Weight to 4 then the result would be
#1 (Index = 36) 40 wins, 1 loss
#2 (Index = 10) 10 wins, 0 losses
#3 (Index = 1) 1 win, 0 losses
#4 (Index = 0) 40 wins, 10 losses
#5 (Index = -39) 21 wins, 15 losses
so it would give you the order that you want. But you can play around with the weight to get the type of ordering that you desire.```
