She should plant 18 daisies and 12 carnations.

Steps:

Divide 30 by 5 because 3+2 is 5

The answer is 6

The proportion for daisy is 3 so multiply 3 by 6 which is 18

For carnations multiply 2 by 6

Answer:18 Daisies and 12 Carnations

Step-by-step explanation:The total amount of flowers adds to be 30 therefore the amount of daises plus the amount of carnations should equal 30 (d+c=30). Then your ratio of daises to carnations is 3 to 2. Which means that you are going to have three daisies for every 2 carnations.
