Select priority from Active_SLA where APP_ID =

If you really want the query ready for use, you'll need to provide more info, like the entity model for us to understand how do you map those tables.

If you look for a generic answer, I have this one:
Suppose two entities: Blog_Post and Blog_Post_Tags, where one Post could have many Tags associated with it.

To select posts based on tags, I would wirte a SQL statement like this:

SELECT * from blog_posts
where post_id in (select post_id from blog_post_tags where tag_name = @tag)

In LINQ, this would be like that:

var posts = from p in Context.Posts
                   where p.Tags.Contains(_tag)
                   select p;

Hope this helps!

Rather than nested queries, you should use join statements to combine tables based on matching columns.

In your example, the proper Linq query would look something like this:
from a in Active_SLA
        join f in FORM_PAGES on a.APP_ID equals f.APP_ID
        join p in PERSON_DEVICES on a.PERSON_ID equals p.PERSON_ID
        where (f.PAGE_ADDRESS == @Address) && (p.DEVICE_NUMBER == @number)
select a.PRIORITY;

Hope that helps!
