The number 18 is multiplied by a number called "r". When 6 is subtracted from the product of 18 times r, the result is 54. Write the equation to solve this word problem.

"The number 18 is multiplied by a number called "r"".
How would you write that? Hint: If x was multiplied by 7, you would write it as 7x.
"When 6 is subtracted from"
How would you indicate that 6 is subtracted from a number? For example, how would you write that 6 is subtracted from 10?
"the result is 54". Ah, finally! We get to use an equals sign. :) How would you write that something equals 54?
