Mike's family traveled x miles. Steve's family traveled 3/4 of the distance Mike's family traveled, or $\frac{3}{4}*x$ but we also know that they traveled 18 miles. Therefore, $18=\frac{3}{4}*x$ and we can solve for x by dividing both sides by 3/4.

(which is equivalent to multiplying both sides by 4/3)
