Let X be the original price of the T.V.

We are told that the sale price is X – 140 dollars, and that the sale price is 40% off the original price.

So the sale price is 0.4X dollars.

We can set up the equation: X – 140 = 0.4X

Then we can solve for X: 0.6X = 140

X = 140 / 0.6

X = $233.33

Therefore, the original price of the T.V is $233.33.
