Joy will need to use 9 cups of strawberries for 6 cups of blueberries.Step-by-step explanation:Given,

Cups of blueberries used for 3 cups of strawberry = 2

Ratio of cups of blueberry to strawberry = 2:3

Joy wants to use 6 cups of blueberries.

Let,

x be the cups of strawberry for 6 cups of blueberries.

Ratio of cups of blueberries to strawberries = 6:x

Using proportion;

Ratio of cups of blueberry to strawberry :: Ratio of cups of blueberries to strawberries

[tex]2:3::6:x[/tex]

Product of extreme = Product of mean

[tex]2*x=3*6\\2x=18[/tex]

Dividing both sides by 2

[tex]\frac{2x}{2}=\frac{18}{2}\\x=9[/tex]
