    I'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).

    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
    90% of 4500 = 4050
    cost: 3000+4500 = 7500
    income: 3450+4050 = 7500
