Welcome to MHB, bizzy916!

A standard way to simplify it, would be:
\begin{aligned}
A &= (B-40)\times 1.5 \times C+C \times 40 \\
&= B \times 1.5 \times C - 40 \times 1.5 \times C+C \times 40 \\
&= 1.5 BC -60 C + 40 C \\
&= 1.5 BC - 20 C
\end{aligned}

this is my own way,
A = (B-40)(1.5C)+40C
A = 1.5BC - 60C + 40C
A = 1.5BC -20C
