Need to add 60Ltr of Water

The total mix is 60Ltr, which has 2:1 ratio of Milk and water.
It contains 40Ltr. Milk and 20Ltr. Water.

Now to make the ratio of 1:2, we need to add water which doubles the current contain of 40Ltr milk
So we need 80 Ltr. of water which shows 1:2. we have 20Ltrs already, so need to add 60Ltr. of water more.

Quantity of milk = (60)*2/3 litres = 40 litres.
Quantity of water in it = (60- 40) litres = 20 litres.
New ratio = 1 : 2
Let quantity of water to be added further be x litres.
Then, milk : water = 40/20+x
Now, 40/20+x=1/2
20 + x = 80
x = 60.
Quantity of water to be added = 60 litre
