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.
