18. Riza solves for the lengths of two segments whose ratio is 

\( 2 : 3 \) and the sum is \( 60 cm \) . How can Riza solves the problem? * A. Find the value of \( x \) in the proportion \( 2 / 3 = x / 60 - x \) as one of the lengths of the segments. Subtract the value of \( x \) from \( 60 \) to find the other length. B. Find the value of \( x \) in the proportion \( 2 / 3 = x / 60 - x \) and simplify. C. Find the value of \( x \) in the proportion \( 2 / 3 = x / 60 - x \) as one of the lengths of the segments, and add the result to \( 60 \) . D. Find the value of \( x \) in the proportion \( 2 / 3 = x / 60 - x \) as one of the lengths of the segments, and multiply the result to \( 60 \) .
