Problems with my tomato plants

Toledo, OH(Zone 6a)

When I was checking my plants today I noticed a few unhappy things about them.

1 Tiny white insects on the back of some leaves
2 Big spots and brown edges on some leaves
3 White spots on some leaves

Please help and let me know what these are, what I can do about it, and which do I need to attack first.

"tiny white insects" make me think of whiteflies or maybe aphids, either one you would be able to take care of by spraying on a mixture of water and dish soap.

The second photo looks like a Magnesium nutrient deficiency in the plant. An easy fix would be an application of epsom salts, either by making a mixture of 1-2 tablespoons per gallon of water and spraying it on, or sprinkling a handful of the dry granules around the plant base and watering it in.

The third looks like some other kind of insect damage, which remedy #1 at the top would probably help put a stop to.
