18= 3/4 (2w-1)

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 \(\boxed{12\dfrac{1}{2}}\).
