    Answer: 50 weeks

    First, since he has a scholarship and a grant, those are used to pay off college debt. So $1,500 + $200 = $1,700

    Now we subtract that from the total debt.

    $14,200 – $1,700 = $12,500

    Now since we’re only seeing how much can pay for HALF of his debt, we divide $12,500 by 2.

    $12,500 ÷ 2 = $6,250

    Finally, we have to divide by the amount of money he earns in a week to find the total weeks.

    $6,250 ÷ $125 = 50

    50 weeks!
