See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 20% can be written as $\frac{20}{100}$ and 25% can be written as $\frac{25}{100}$.

When dealing with percents the word "of" means "times" or "to multiply".

We can now write this expression as:

$\left(\frac{20}{100} \times 90\right) \div \left(\frac{25}{100} \times 36\right)$

$\frac{\frac{20}{100} \times 90}{\frac{25}{100} \times 36}$

$\frac{\frac{1800}{100}}{\frac{900}{100}} \to \frac{18}{9} \to 2$
