10-16.

Johanna is planting tomatoes in the school garden this year. Tomato plants come in packs of $6$. She needs $80$ plants in the garden and already has $28$. How many packs of plants will she need?

Write an equation to represent this situation.

For each pack Johanna will gain $6$ more tomato plants, so we need to multiply each pack by $6$. She already has $28$ tomato plants and she needs $80$.

In equation form:
$6p + 28 = 80$
$p$ is the number of packs of plants.

Solve for $p$. Round up to the nearest whole pack.
