1. Just calculate the cost of each selection.
I will do the first one, you do the others in the same way

selling price of shirt = .75(15.98) = \$11.99
selling price of pants = .85(25.59) = \$21.75

A.
cost of 1 shirt and 4 pants = 1(11.99) + 4(21.75) = \$98.99
So she can't do that, she only has \$90.00

B.
