The only quantity we do not know is the number of icicles.

Let the number of icicles be x

$7.90\times 3+1.05\times 6+0.50\times x=39.50\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\text{all in \$}}$

$23.70+6.30+0.5x=39.50$

$0.5x=39.50-30.00$

$0.5x=9.5$

$\frac{0.5x}{0.5}=\frac{9.5}{0.5}$

$x=19$

19 icicles were bought
