The property taxes in a town decrease as the distance from the local elementary school increases. The greatest property taxes are 4.5% and for every 10 miles

hi i need help to solve this question of math,
Thank you
The property taxes in a town decrease as the distance from the local elementary school increases. The greatest property taxes are 4.5% and for every 10 miles from the school, property taxes decrease by 0.50 percentage points. If a house's property taxes are 3%, what is the distance of that house from the school?

I just realized that I did not do this problem correctly.  I think that the highest tax rate is when you live at the school: 4.5%, so, if you live 10 miles away, you pay 4%, and if you live 20 miles away, you pay 3.5%, and if you live 30 miles away, you pay 3%.
