1. the beads recur in cycles of 5 colors.

85 is the largest multiple of 5 which is less than 90. So bead #85 is red.

After that is yellow,blue, making 87 beads in all.

I have no idea what "the first bead is yellow, and the last bead is blue for each color" means, since you already gave the order of the colors.

If I have it wrong, follow my logic and get it right.
