Lengths of the pool

Miguel swam 6 lengths of the pool. Mat swam 3 times as far as Miguel. Lionel swam 1/3 as far as Miguel. How many lengths did mat swim?

Result

c =  2

Solution:

a=6 b=3 a=3 6=18 c=13 a=13 6=2a=6 \ \\ b=3 \cdot \ a=3 \cdot \ 6=18 \ \\ c=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \cdot \ a=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \cdot \ 6=2
