The golf club's original price was $50.

#### Explanation:

$30 represents 60% of the total price of the golf club.

We must divide 30 by 6 to find how much 10% of the total price of the golf club would be.

So, since we know that 10% of the golf club's total price would be $5, if we multiply that by 10, we'd get its total price.

The golf club's original price was $50.

To double check, we can take off 40%.

Our answer is correct.
