The beads were packed into 2 containers.

At first, Container A contained 500 beads and $\dfrac{2}{5}$ of them were blue beads. Container B contained 300 beads and $\dfrac{1}{5}$ of them were blue.

Find the total number of red and blue beads that must be moved from Container A to Container B such that $\dfrac{3}{5}$ of the beads in Container A are red and $\dfrac{1}{4}$ of the beads in Container B are blue.

I am wondering if this problem can be solved without using any algebra method...
