4-80.

Richie and Bethany play basketball and practice shooting free throws after school. During one practice session, Richie attempted $15$ free throws and made $12$ of them. Homework Help ✎

1. Write a ratio comparing the number of free throws he made to the number that he missed.

• If Richie made $12$ free throws, that means he missed $3$, since $15 - 12 = 3$. Now write a ratio in the form of # of free throws made: # of free throws missed.

$12$ shots made: $3$ shots missed or
$4$ shots made: $1$ shot missed

1. Bethany made eight free throws for every three that she missed. Did Bethany do better than Richie? Show how you know.

• Can you change these fractions into a percent and compare Bethany to Richie?

No, Bethany did not do better than Richie. She made $72\%$ of her shots and Richie made $80\%$ of his.
