10-16.

** **Homework Help ✎

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:

6*p* + 28 = 80

*p* is the number of packs of plants.

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