Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

You have to add n strawberry candies to the original number of strawberry candies AND the total number of candies in the dish, so

(8+n) / (15+n) = 3 / 4

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
