**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 5:21pmSteve's brother time to catch-up --- t hrs

Steve's time to catch-up by brother -- t+2

54t = 18(t+2)

54t = 18t + 36

36t = 36

t = 1

Steve had biked for 3 hours, when his brother overtook him.

**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 5:38pmsimply sub in the value of t = 1 into both distances., you will obviously get the same answer since they both went the same distance.
