1. ## 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!.

Set equal to $128$ and solve for $s$.
