Later in the year there was a bug problem and many trees died. New trees were planted to make sure there was the same number of trees as before the bug problem. The new ratio of the number of map;e trees to the number of oal trees is 3:11. After planting new trees, there were 132 oak trees. How many more maple trees were in the woodlot before the bug problem than after the bug problem?
