In LaTeX: $$18=\frac{3}{4}(2w-1)$$. Solving this, we get $$\frac{6w}{4}-\frac{3}{4}=18, \frac{6w}{4}=18\frac{3}{4}$$ . Now, multiplying both sides by $$4$$ , we attain       $$​​​​​​6w=75, \boxed{x=12.5}.$$

$$18= 3/4 (2w-1)$$

I would directly multiply both sides by $$\dfrac{4}{3}$$ to get $$24 = 2w-1$$. Adding 1 to both sides, we have $$2w = 25$$, and by dividing both sides by 2, we have $$\boxed{12.5}$$ or $$\boxed{12\dfrac{1}{2}}$$.
