$$\frac{36}{100} * 18$$ = $$\frac{18}{100} * x$$

$$\frac{9}{25} * 1$$ = $$\frac{1}{100} * x$$

$$9 * 1$$ = $$\frac{1}{4} * x$$

x = 36

OPTION: C

0.36 * 18 = .18 *x

x= 36
IMO C

This can be quick recognition that the number needs to be doubled.

I'm never confident with these acts of quick recognition, so the equation

$$\frac{36}{100}·18=\frac{18}{100}·x$$
Multiply both sides by 100
36·18=18·x
Divide both sides by 18
36=x
