    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.

    10/2 = 5 is '1' ratio 

    Hence '3' ratios is  5 x 3 = 15

    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 <––––––
