Vanilla/Choc = 2/3 => 3V=2C
If number of vanilla sold is 4 more, the ratio would be 3/4 so we get V+4/C=3/4 => 4V + 16 = 3C.

Solving for V would give the answer.

V/C=2/3

3V=2C, V = 2/3C

If the store had sold 4 more vanilla cones, the ratio would be 3/4.

So (V+4)/C = 3/4, substitue V = 2/3C into the equation, I get C = 48, V = 32.

A is my answer

V:C = 2:3 =>3V=2c or V = 2c/3 -> Equn 1
(V+4):c = 3:4 => 4v + 16 = 3c -> Equn 2
Solving equn 1 and 2 we get C=48 and V=32.

Hence A.
