    Writing this Equation, need help!

    2. You transfer into a college with 60 credits. How long will it take you to graduate if you can only take 8 credits per semester? The number of credits needed to graduate is 128. Write an equation for the number of credits accumulated as a function of the number of semesters at the college.


    Not sure how to go about doing this, any help would be great!.

    This belongs in the pre-university forums.

    \text{credits}=60+8s

    Set equal to 128 and solve for s.
