    I think it is C because 27 is slightly bigger than Mh which is 27.

    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.

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