I have just one math problem that I need a little help with. Please give me the answer, and walk me through it, too, to help me understand it. Thanks!

The price of a ring is decreased by 40% and the resulting price is increased by 50%. The final price is $360. What was the original price?

I've tried this problem a few times, but I haven't gotten any good answers yet.

Again, thanks so much! I appreciate your help!
