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.
