11-33.

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.
