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 misunderstood the question.
