A school buys some outdoor benches. They spend $385 in total for 5 benches. The company they use offers a discount scheme. The first bench is full price. The next two benches get a 25% discount on the full price. Any additional benches are reduced by 50% of the full price. What is the full price cost of a bench?

I hope this is correct.

The 1st bench is x. The 2nd and 3rd benches are each 3x/4. The 4th and 5th benches are each x/2. We then solve x + x + 3x/4 + 3x/4 + x/2 +x/2 = 385. The answer, rounded to the nearest cent, is then $85.56.
