It’s wrong but good try anyway! :) Just wanna explain to you where you gone wrong. 20% should be multiply on M instead of just adding it to L. Reason being M is 100% and L is 120% of M. (L is 20% more than M)

If you simply just add 20% to L, you are adding 20% of the total amount to L, which is incorrect as it should be adding 20% of M to L instead.

Hope you understand haha. Cheers! Do take a look at my answer. Have a great night!
