Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

lets get 1st barn as x

and second barn as y

then

x-20=3(y+20)-------------------(1)

simplify

x-20=3y+60

x-80=3y

(x-80)/3=y

so amount of the second barn was (x-80)/3

but we should know x to find Y

are there any missing part of the question?
