I can't figure out the order of operations to solve the following story problem. Could someone help me?

"[FONT="]A candy maker makes two sizes of candies. Using the smaller size, a full jar will contain 120 pieces of candy. Using the larger candies a jar will contain 80 pieces of candy. The candy maker has a strict rule that no jars will contain a mix of small and large candies. If a store has room for 15 jars and they want 1560 total pieces of candy, how many jars will contain smaller candies?"[/FONT]
