To solve problems with similar triangles, it's good to see which sides are corresponding, and which sides we know and are being asked to find.

We want x. x corresponds to 18. We know 36, and 36 corresponds to 24. That allows us to write a proportion. \(\Large \dfrac{36}{24} = \dfrac{x}{18} \) Now we reduce the fraction on the left side, and we cross multiply.

i wish i could give medals to you both

Yes it is 27
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
\(\Large \dfrac{3}{2} = \dfrac{x}{18} \) \(\Large 2x = 3(18)\) \(\Large 2x = 54\) \(\Large x = 27\) Yes, you are correct.
