    Consider the minimum payment Week interest paid loan (at most) (x = total loan - interest paid) 1 67 750 - 67 = 683 2 67 x 2 = 134 750 - 134 = 616 3 67 x 3 = 201 750 - 201 = 549 4 67 x 4 = 268 750 - 268 = 482 5 67 x 5 = 335 750 - 335 = 415 6 67 x 6 = 402 750 - 402 = 345 7 67 x 7 = 469 750 - 469 = 281 8 67 x 8 = 536 750 - 536 = 214 The amount of the loan can be less than x as he may pay more than 67 in any weeks. However, it cannot be greater than x as he keeps his promise to pay the minimum amount of 67. Can you get the answer now?
