Torsional Problem with gears

Hi, this is a question from a previous past paper that I am having trouble with. Am I meant to just use the number of teeth from each gear to find a ratio and use this to find the effective inertia at point C. Then use this to find a torque and take away the torque of the constant load.
My exam is tomorrow so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my working

Thanks

Your notation is confusing... Ib=Ib+Ia(r^2)?!
More importantly, you are thinking about the ratios wrongly. As gear B turns once, how often does gear A turn?
