    Answer:

    ´╗┐He will need to sleep 5.77 hours

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The first night, he slept 3 percent more than the previous night, meaning 5.28 + (5.28 x 3/100) = 5.28 + 0.1584 = 5.4384

    The second night, he will need to sleep 3 percent more than the previous night, meaning 5.4384 + (5.4384 x 3/100) = 5.4384 + 0.163152 = 5.601552

    The third night, he will need to sleep 3 percent more than the previous night, meaning 5.601552 + (5.601552 x 3/100) = 5.601552 + 0.16804656 = 5.76959856 = 5.77
