If we took the original price and multiplied it by 70% (which is a 30% discount), then we get the new price of $35. To find the original price, we need to solve the equation:

`0.7x=35` where x is the original price. Solve by dividing by 0.7

`x=35/0.7` switch 0.7 into the fraction 7/10

`x=35/(7/10)` now invert and multiply

`x=35/1(10/7)` cancel common factors

`x=5(10)`

`x=50`

**The original price of the glove is $50.**
