    The original bill was $25.26

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To find the original bill, you need to divide the amount paid by the percentage paid. Since the tip was 21.5% on top of the full amount already, we know she paid 121.5%. So we can divide the cost by that.

    $30.69/121.5% = $25.26
