When calculating reduction potentials, how do you know which one is being oxidized if they are both given as reductions? Thanks in advance!:)

higher reduction potential ===> less oxidize and visa vera
in other hand if two are competing for reduction, high reduction potential will win for gaining electron and will reduct and other will oxidize. and visa versa.
