There are more apples in box A than in box B.

$\displaystyle A>B$

30 % of the apples in box A is 45 more than 40% of the apples in box B.

$\displaystyle 0.3A=0.4B+45$

If 10 % of the apples in box A is transferred to box B, there will be 200 more apples in box A than box B.

$\displaystyle B_{new}=B+0.1A$

$\displaystyle A_{new}=A-0.1A$

$\displaystyle A-0.1A=B+0.1A+200$

a) How many apples are there in box B?

b) How many percent less apples are there in box B than in box A?
