Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

if x is the cost of each monthly pass without discount

cost of pass with discount = 85%x

total for six months = 6 *85%x =  5.1x

alternatively

x is cost of each monthly pass without discount

total cost for 6 months without discount = 6x

discount = 15% *6x =0.9x

total cost of package with discount = 6x- 0.9x =5.1x

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
