    Question from Dannie Ho:
    NY primary school organised a 2-Day Charity Funfair. Admission tickets were sold to every visitor at a cost of $40. On the first day, 120 more children visited the funfair than adults. The number of children on the second day was 25% more than the number of children on the first day. The number of adults on the second day was 5% less than the number of adults on the first day. There were a total of 2570 people at the funfair on the second day.
    a) find the number of adults at the funfair on the first day.
