  1. Steve'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.

  4. simply sub in the value of t = 1 into both distances., you will obviously get the same answer since they both went the same distance.
