A member of the junior varsity swim team will be elected as President. Each member is equally likely to be elected. The probability that a sophomore is elected is  times the probability that a freshman is elected. Everyone on the junior varsity swim team is either a freshman or sophomore. What fraction of the swim team are sophomores?

Hello, the probability is not shown, but I can give you some pointers:

The probability can be converted into a ratio of the number of sophomores to the number of freshmen (or vice versa). After you find that out, you can easily get the desired answer. 
Hope this helps!
