    Original Cost + Tip = $56.33, but you know the Tip was 15% of the original cost so...

    Original Cost + Original Cost * (.15) = $56.33

    OriginalCost (1+.15) = $56.33

    Original Cost (1.15) = $56.33

    Original Cost = $56.33/1.15

    Original Cost = $48.98

    Check: Tip is 15% of original so $48.98 * .15 = $7.35

    Original Cost + Tip Amount = $48.98 + $7.35 = $56.33

    15%*56.33=8.4495

    56.33-8.4495=47.8805

    Or about $47.88
