**Steve**, Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 10:51amI'll do one, then you can show har far you get on the others. Just put the words into symbols and solve the resultant equation(s).

#1.

If the two TVs cost x and y, then

1.15x = 3450

x + y = 1.15x + .90y

So, x = 3450/1.15 = 3000

.1y = 3450-3000 = 450

y = 4500

The two TVs cost 3000 and 4500

check:

90% of 4500 = 4050

cost: 3000+4500 = 7500

income: 3450+4050 = 7500
