Answer: 60 weeksStep-by-step explanation: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!
