I am stuck...

I have 60% acid solution and 20% acid solution I need to figure out how to get 360 liters of 50% acid solution.
I think I need to determine what ration of 60% to 20% equals 50% (this is where I am stuck) how do I do this?
Then take that number and divide it into the 360. to see how many liter of 60 and how many of 20 i would need to equal 360 liters.

Any help would be appreciated - thanks

HINT:
x = amount at 60%; then 360-x = amount at 20%
