Karen and Perry are sharing a packet of sweets in the ratio 2 : 3.

If Karen gets 10 sweets, Perry gets 15 sweets.

P = 1.5K so P gets 15 sweets

Perry gets 3/2 as many as Kate gets, per the order of operations implied by your question's wording.

Karen wasn't noted in the parameters, what she gets is irrelevant.

For every 2 sweets Katy gets, Perry gets 3.

How many 2s are in 10? 5

So multiply 5 times 3 and that's how many Perry gets.

There is no information on the ratio of Karen to either Kate or Perry

Therefor no solution is possible.

----------------------------------

If the question intended to give the

Karen : Perry ratio as

2 : 3

Karen gets 10 sweets

10/2 = 5

Multiply both sides of the ratio by 5

Karen : Perry ratio becomes

10 : 15

Perry gets 15 sweets <––––––
