3/5 of Alan’s money was 4/5 of Barry’s money. If Barry gave Alan $30, then he would have $100 more than the amount he had left. How much did Barry have at first?

Alan Barry

3/5x = 4/5(3/4x) (So far I got only this)

Can someone explain the meaning of this:

If Barry gave Alan 30, then he would have 100 more than the amount he had left.

You're right, jugoslav; that wording is strange!
