(A) 6/7
(B) 13/14
(C) 1
(D) 14/13
(E) 7/6

first solve for Joe
coffe = 12 ounces -2 ounce = 10 ounce
cream = 2ounce ; total 12 ounce
ratio of cream in cup ; 2/12 ; 1/6 or 2 ounces cream

Joann= 12 ounces coffee
cream = 2 ounces; total 14 ounces
drank 2 ounce ; left 12 ounce
but cream ratio is 2/14 ; 1/7 drank
left with 6/7 of cream
there is 2*6/7 = 12/7 left
ratio 2/12* 7 ; 7/6 cream ratio
IMO E
