If company A has an excess amount of glove they are willing to sell for a flat rate of 79.95. and company B has gloves they will sell for 30.95 and .15 per pair of gloves and company C also has gloves they will sell for 20.95 and .35 per pair. when will the costs be the same?

    1st equation:
    .15x + 30.95 = 79.95
    .15x = 49
    x = 327 pairs of gloves

    2nd equation:
    .35x + 20.95 = 79.95
    x = 169 pairs of gloves

    3rd equation
    .35x + 20.95 = .15x + 30.95
    .2x = 10
    x = 50

    A and B gloves will cost the same if they sell327 pairs
    A and C gloves will cost the same at 169 pairs
    B and C gloves will cost the same at 50 gloves

    Silly question, unless I mis-understood the question.
