Three ice cream cones multiplied collectively are equal to the quantity 27. Since Three multiplied by Three multiplied by Three equals 27, every cone have to be equal to three.

Transferring on to the following row, two ice cream cones every topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream added collectively equal 10. So since every cone equals 3, the vanilla scoops should every equal 2. (In different phrases, Three plus Three plus 2 plus 2 equals 10.)

Now, a double scoop of vanilla on a cone plus a single scoop of strawberry on a cone equals 11. So if a double-scoop of vanilla equals 4 (2 plus 2) and every cone is the same as 3, the strawberry scoop should equal 1. (As a result of Four plus 6 equals 10, plus 1 for the strawberry scoop equals 11.)

And at last, one vanilla scoop on a cone, plus one empty cone, plus a double-scoop of strawberry and a single scoop of vanilla on a cone, all collectively equals 15. One scoop of vanilla on a cone is the same as 5 (2 plus 3), and an empty cone is the same as 3. Two strawberry scoops plus one vanilla scoop plus one cone could be calculated as 1 plus 1 plus 2 plus 3 (which comes out to 7). So collectively, one vanilla scoop (5) plus one cone (3) plus a triple scoop with two strawberries and one vanilla on a cone (7) equals 15.
