Let the number of strawberry sold = x

The number of vanilla =  strawberry + 2  =  x + 2

The number of chocolate =  vanilla + 11  =   (x + 2) + 11  =  x + 13

 

So we have that

 

x + ( x + 2) + ( x + 13)  = 42     simplify

 

3x + 15  = 42           subtract 15 from both sides

 

3x  =  27          divide both sides by 3

 

x = 9  =  strawberry sold
