    All 3 towns lie in a straight line and it looks like you are learning about integers.

    draw a number line marking it off in 100's
    put Jamesburg (J) at 0
    Newtown (N) is west of J by 522 so , -522 , go 522 to the left
    P is east of J by 356 so, +356
    but Pottsville (P) is also 928 east of Mayfield (M)
    or M is 928 west of P
    That would put M at -50

    (count the distances on your number line)
    Mayfield is 50 km to the west of Newtown.
