Appleton’s population is 400 greater than Berryville’s population. If Berryville’s population were reduced by 900 people, then Appleton’s population would be 3 times as large as Berryville’s population. What is Berryville’s current population?

400+x = y and y=3(x-300) these two r different things i'll elaborate according to the statement -Appleton’s population is 400 greater than Berryville’s population---- we took Appleton's population as y and berryville's popu. as x and made the equation :- y=400+x according to the statement- If Berryville’s population were reduced by 900 people, then Appleton’s population would be 3 times as large as Berryville’s population-------we made the second equation :- y=3(x-300) nw u hav to equate these two equations to get the answer
