Thank you... I knew it'd be simple! I'm struggling with another mind numbingly simple sum now... If you had a garden with two plots that was 12m by 12m with a path running straight through the middle of it 2m across what area of turf would be needed to cover the plots?

I have been relying on a calculator to figure out even the most simple of equations for far too long.... The problem i have is:

If a number of season ticket holders has fallen by 1/8 to 10,500, how many season ticket holders have been lost?

I know that the answer is 1,500, but I don't know (or can't remember) how on earth to figure it out!?

Help?

Thanks
