Ms. Sue,
I'll be glad to check your answer.

Sam,
36*108=3888 divided by 100=38.88?

math 
Ms. Sue,
You didn't set up a proportion. And your answer is wrong.
First let's estimate the answer. 36% is a little more than 1/3. 3 * 108 = 324
Now the proportion.
36/100 = 108/x
Cross multiply and solve for x.
