Robert borrowed $750 from his parents to make some repairs on his car. He promised to repay the loan by giving his parents at least $67 from his paycheck each week. Assuming Robert sticks to his promise, which of the following is not a possible scenario for the amount of debt Robert has remaining?
After 5 weeks, Robert is $150 in debt. After 6 weeks, Robert is $200 in debt. After 7 weeks, Robert is $250 in debt. After 8 weeks, Robert is $300 in debt.
