Make the largest payments

you can.  There is no magic formula.

Avoid making minimum payments. Most Credit Cards have a minimum payment of $20 -$30 above that they usually charge 1% minimum payment so 100 payments to pay them off.  I always suggest paying no less than 10% of the balance each month.  That would mean paying at least $620. per month on your debt.

Make the largest payments you can every month. If you can't afford more than the minimum payment then you need to re-evaluate your monthly budget.  Paying off credit cards that charge monthly interest should always be of highest priority.

Good luck
