6-38.

Refer to the Math Notes box in Lesson 6.1.4 for help with ratios.

If Richie made 12 freethrows, that means he missed 3. Can you write the ratio?

If Bethany made 8 freethrows and missed 3, she shot a total of 11 freethrows. Can you make a fraction representing how many freethrows Bethany made?

$\text{With the information given, we know that Bethany}$

$\text{made }\frac{8}{11}\text{ shots and Richie made }\frac{12}{15}\text{ shots.}$

Can you change these fractions into a percent and compare Bethany and Richie? Use the Math Notes box excerpt to the right for help.

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