Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it is C because 27 is slightly bigger than Mh which is 27.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large \dfrac{3}{2} = \dfrac{x}{18} \) \(\Large 2x = 3(18)\) \(\Large 2x = 54\) \(\Large x = 27\) Yes, you are correct.
