30*50 = 1500

15 dollars is the cost of the box, you have to sell it for 60 dollars to make a 45 dollar profit. 

60/50 = 1.25

We  need  to  sell  30  +  45  =  $75  dollars  worth

 

So

 

Sales -   Expenses   =  Profit

 

50P    -   30    =   45                  where P  is  the price per  bar

 

50P  =  45  +  30

 

50P  =  75

 

P  =  75/50   =  1.5   dollars  =   $1.50  per bar
