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)

x-20=3y+60

x-80=3y

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

 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
