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.
