### Maths help - AMEX MR related

Good evening everyone,

Just need some help with working something out in relation to AMEX MR points.

I am interested in time in using all my MR points towards a charge on my charge card. The charge is going to be for \$25,000. I get \$7 per 1000 MR points. How many MR points will I need to have to be able to apply for the \$25,000 charge?

Thanks !!

1000 pts / 7 = 142.857

142.857 pts = \$1

25,000 X 142.857 = 3,571,425 MR pts to satisfy the charge.

I rounded to the nearest 1000th so +/- a few hundred pts.
