To find the original price of the item, divide the sale price ($15) by the percentage of the original price it represents (30%). Then, multiply the result by 100 to get the original price.

Original Price = (Sale Price / Percentage of Original Price) * 100 Original Price = ($15 / 30%) * 100 Original Price = ($15 / 0.30) * 100 Original Price = $50
