I need to compute probability

 

 

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  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?

Because the probability of being elected as president is equally likely and the probability for a sophomore to be elected is the same as the probability for a freshman to be elected, the answer should be 1/2
