    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]

    Joy will need to use 9 cups of strawberries for 6 cups of blueberries.
