    Answer:

    $40

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let

    Original price = x

    Selling price = $10

    Discount = 75%

    Selling price = original price – (Discount * original price)

    10 = x – 75% of x

    10 = x – 0.75 * x

    10 = x – 0.75x

    10 = 0.25x

    x = 10/0.25

    x = 40

    Original price = x = $40
