Let x = amount of vinegar if she wants to make a solution that's 30% vinegar and 70% olive oil, then you would need to make the ratio x/(x+14) equal to 0.3 this is because x/(x+14) is the percentage of x teaspoons of vinegar out of the total amount x+14 teaspoons this means... x/(x+14) = 0.3 x = 0.3(x+14) x = 0.3x+0.3*14 x = 0.3x+4.2 x - 0.3x = 4.2 0.7x = 4.2 x = 4.2/0.7 x = 6 So she needs 6 teaspoons of vinegar
If she has 6 teaspoons of vinegar and fourteen tablespoons of olive oil, then she will have 6+14 = 20 teaspoons of solution the percentage of vinegar is 6/20 = 0.3 = 30% the percentage of olive oil is 14/20 = 0.7 = 70% so that checks out
teaspoons and tablespoons are not interchangeable units :-)

oh my bad, but you get the idea just replace all teaspoons with tablespoons
