Hi guys, I need help with this question please. Thanks

Adults all pay the same admission price to watch a football match. There is no charge for children under 16.
Following record low takings of £1560 at the last match it was decided to reduce the admission price by 25 % this week in an attempt to increase the attendance figures. As a result, exactly 40 % more adults than last time have paid to watch today’s match.
How much has been taken at the gate today?

I don;t know where to start too =(

Do you know what to multiply by in order to reduce by 25%?

Do you know what to multiply by in order to increase by 40%?

If so, start with 1560 and multiply away
