Enter the total bill amount and the monthly payment into the calculator to determine the time to pay off bills.

## Pay Off Bills Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the time to pay off bills.

T = BA / MP

• Where T is the time to pay off bills (months)
• BA is the total bill amount (\$)
• MP is the monthly payment made on the bill (\$)

To calculate the time to pay off bills, divide the total bill amount by the monthly payment made on the bill.

## How Long Does it Take to Pay Off Bills?

Definition:

The time it takes to pay off bills depends on two factors:

1. The total amount of the bill. The higher the bill amount, the longer it will take to pay off.
2. The monthly payment made on the bill. The greater the monthly payment, the quicker the bill will be paid off.

## How to Calculate Time to Pay Off Bills?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the time to pay off bills.

First, determine the amount of the bill. In this example, the amount of the bill is \$10,000.00.

Next, determine the monthly payment made on this bill. In this case, the monthly payment is \$200.00.

Finally, calculate the time it takes to pay off the bill using the formula above:

T = BA / MP

T = 10,000/200

T = 50 months = 4.166 years
