    "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?
