1. Answer: 60 weeks

Step-by-step explanation:

2. 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!
