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

24 LOL

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.

LK Lol

so i have to do a proportion

- anonymous

yes I think So

- anonymous

i got 48

- mathstudent55

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.

- anonymous

so it is 27

- anonymous

i wish i could give medals to you both

- anonymous

Yes it is 27

- mathstudent55

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

Don't give me the medal I just want to help
