$x = - 2.75$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{11}{36} = - \frac{x}{9}$

$\left(- x\right) \left(36\right) = \left(9\right) \left(11\right)$

$- 36 x = 99$

$x = \frac{99}{-} 36$

$x = - 2.75$

The key thing here is to cross multiply to solve the problem, once you have that you essentially have the answer.
