I made the code a little more user interactive.

def win_percentage():
  """This functon asks the user for two ints . This will take two ints. 
  First amount is win, second is losses. It will calc the % of wins."""
  print("This will take two ints. First amount of wins and then the losses.\nThen will return the % of same.")
  wins = float(input("wins total "))
  losses = float(input("losses total "))
  total_per_cent_of_wins = wins / (wins+losses)*100 
#challenge if total_per_cent_of_wins then Y
#challenge make sure user only enters int! throw message accordingly
