It costs \$12.50 to see a movie at a theater near Jason's house. It costs only 1.95 to rent a DVD from an online service. A DVD player costs \$125. To the nearest whole number, how many movies must Jason watch on DVD instead of at the theater before he recovers the cost of the DVD player?

Each DVD he watches instead of going to the cinema saves: \$12.50 - \$1.95 = \$10.55

So how many \$10.55s are there in \$125?
