# A young person in the home notifies you that they would like to buy a new games console. The cost of the console is £276. If the young person is able to save £12 per week, how many weeks will it take them to save enough money to buy the games console?

To determine how many weeks it will take for the young person to save enough money to buy the games console costing £276 at a rate of saving £12 per week, you can use the following calculation:
1. Divide the total cost of the console by the amount saved per week:
\[
\text{Number of weeks} = \frac{\text{Total cost}}{\text{Amount saved per week}} = \frac{276}{12}
\]
2. Performing the division:
\[
\frac{276}{12} = 23
\]
It will take the young person **23 weeks** to save enough money to buy the games console.
