    2. Who is the better shooter? Show all of your work and explain your reasoning clearly.

Hugo = 3:2
Victor = 2:1

Try finding a common denominator to directly compare the number of shots made.

30 looks like a good common denominator for the two ratios.
Try rewriting both fractions with 30 as the denominator and compare the two fractions.
