You were shown the approach, advised what to do and given confirmation of the correct answer. I don't see the point of this reply. Even had I not alrady conformed the correct answer, it should be evident that the ratio of something larger to something smaller cannot possibly be 2 : 3 (and the reference to D is pointless since your original post makes no mention of options).
