Attached is a file I need to use to answer some questions. The DNA is 5' to 3'

These questions refer to an intron that starts at nucleotide 128 and is 179 nucleotides long, ending at nucleotide 306.

1. By how many nucleotides do the first six nucleotides (on the 5' end) of the first intron differ from their consensus sequence?
2. By how many nucleotides do the last ten nucleotides (on the 3' end) of the first intron differ from their consensus sequences?
3. By how many nucleotides does the AAUAAA cleavage signal in the mRNA differ from its consensus sequence?
