Field of view on FX and DX

Let's assume I would put a zoom lens on an FX body and set it at a focal length of X mm. If I wanted to know what the field of view would be like on a DX body for this focal length, I should zoom the lens on the FX body towards a focal length of 1.5 * X mm (Nikon)?

E.g. a focal length of 36 mm on FX would yield the same field of view as 24 mm on DX?

18-105 mm on DX would equal a lens of 27-157.5 mm on FX, regarding the range of field of view?

Thanks
