In a certain department store, which has four sizes of a specific shirt, there are 1/3 as many small shirts as medium shirts, and 1/2 as many large shirts as small shirts. If there are as many x-large shirts as large shirts, what percent of the shirts in the store are medium?

Here it is

Small = 1/3* Medium
Or Medium = 3 * Small

Large = 1/2*Small
or Small = 2 * large

XLarge = L

Lets Say Large == L
Large = L
Medium = 2 * Small = 6 * large (as Small = 2* Large, see above) = 6L
Small = 2L
XL =L

Total = 6L+2L+L+L = 10L

So % of medium:

6L/10L*100 = 60%

Whats wrong with me!! I see a question and then copy the numerics wrongly!!
